JK Rowling: Detective Book Series in the Works?

From the wizard world to crime fiction!

J.K. Rowling is rumored to working on a detective book series according to UK’s The Sunday Times

She has been spotted working on the novel at cafes in Scotland as quoted by Ian Rankin, a fellow author and neighbor of Rowling‘s.

“My wife spotted her writing her Edinburgh criminal detective novel,” Rankin told reporters at an Edinburgh literary festival.

JK also recently lost a legal battle against UK’s The Sunday Express. A photo of Rowling‘s son, David, was previously published in the newspaper alongside an article about Jo‘s approach to motherhood.

Jo and husband Neil had stated, “We see no legitimate reason why, as in this case, David, who was less than two years of age at the time, should have his photograph taken and then published in the press. We take his, and that of his siblings, privacy and safety very seriously.”

The judge had “considerable sympathy for the claimant’s parents and anyone else who wishes to shield their children from intrusive media attention. [But] an area of routine activity which, when conducted in a public place, carries no guarantee of privacy.”
