Hi, LotD afro

I bet Rowling will be glad to see the back of Harry Potter - she's said as much in the past.  It'll be interesting to see whether she manages to come up with another best selling character, or whether she hangs up her keyboard.  Never know, she could carry on with a spin-off line of books on one of the other characters. scratch

Yes, it seems the trend is for prequils, doesn't it?  Hey, maybe the adventures of the young Voldermort (sp?) and how he turned to the dark side might be more in fitting scratch smiley

It's difficult to say what Rowling will do now.
I saw her recent picture here and there...she looks pretty damn tired, if you ask me.

Making SO much money in such a reletively short time is a beautiful thing for any writer, but sometimes you wonder if it will affect creativity. Hungry writers sometimes create great works. If you already have a hundred million in the bank, perhaps you no longer have the same drive and motivation as previously. You begin to look at other avenues in life, such as a nice vacation in the Bahamas with some lobster and a bucket of iced Coronas... afro

I could be wrong on this one. Never been in that position. (lol)

I know some writers who make it big, as Rowling has done, often purchase the newest equipment, software, a staff, etc. and begin cranking out books the easier way.

We'll see what she does next... scratch

I'd say yes, but we've already trodden that ground in the series proper. The history of Tom Marvolo Riddle is no secret.

TBH, I don't know much about the books - I haven't read any of them.  I've enjoyed the films, though smiley

I think she'll be done with the HP books. I doupt she'll do a spinoff. I would like  to see the young james and lily a wee bit though.
