Jo & Harry

"…I wrote the book… in snatched hours, in clattering cafés or in the dead of night. For me, the story of how I wrote Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is written invisibly on every page, legible only to me. Sixteen years after it was published, the memories are as vivid as ever as I turn these pages."

[How is Harry Potter doing?]
believe him to [be living a very happy and] calm life.

[Will we ever see him again?]
I think not, but I’ve always said: Never say never. Not because I want [to raise people’s hopes, but because I loved writing those books and if I should ever have a really good idea for this world I wouldn’t resist. When it comes to Harry, I believe his days a main character are over and I’m sure it would be a mistake to recall him from retirement. He had a hard life, I won’t disturb his peace.]

I just write what I wanted to write. I write what amuses me. It’s totally for myself.
