he British Daily Mail
newspaper reported that Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has strongly hinted for the first time that she could write an eighth book in the series.
Rowling, 42, admitted in an interview with Time magazine that she has "weak moments" when she feels she will pen another novel about the boy wizard, the newspaper reported. "There have been times since finishing, weak moments, when I've said 'Yeah, all right,' to the eighth novel," Rowling reportedly told the magazine.
One of her biggest fans--her 14-year-old daughter Jessica--has already put pressure on her to revisit the character, the newspaper reported.
But Rowling said that if she were to write an eighth novel in the hit series, it is unlikely that Harry would be the central character.
Rowling finished the seventh and supposedly final book in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
, a year ago.
