As we all expect that the series to come to an end, the author made a surprise statement.
Rowling said: “I could definitely write an eighth, a ninth book. I think I am done, but you never know.”
It seemed the interview took place in Edinburgh, Scotland, where Oprah and Rowling discussed about the death of Rowling’s mother.
“The books wouldn’t be what they are if she hadn’t died. I mean, her death is literally on every other page in the “Harry Potter” books.”
“At least half of Harry’s journey is to deal with death, what it does to the living, what it means to die, what survives death….If she hadn’t died, I don’t think it is too strong to say there wouldn’t be Harry Potter. The books are what they are because she died.”
She also spoke about finishing writing the seventh book of the series, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”.
“It was a bereavement, it was huge,” she told Oprah. “Initially I was elated, then I cried like I had never cried before.”
