J.K. Rowling has said she is not ruling out writing another book set in Harry Potter’s world.
Rowling would take another trip on the Hogwarts Express only if she had "a great idea," she said. "I don't want to go mechanically back in to that world and pick up loads of odds and ends and glue them together and go 'here we go.’ It would make a mockery of what those books mean to me."
But a new novel would center around characters other than The Boy who Lived. “Where Harry’s story is concerned, I’m done,’’ she said. Instead, she would craft a “sidestep’’ story, rather than a sequel or prequel. http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/49177003/ns/today-books/#.UGXN7FHdeSA
Which characters would you like to see her focus on in a "sidestep story"?
I think it would be interesting to find out about the young Authur Weasly and Molly Weasley (née Prewett)... I can imagine a young Authur getting into all sorts of mischief, with his love of all things Muggle! LOL
Or maybe the Lestrange/Black family... Bellatrix as a girl must have been pretty frightening!
