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.”

    It’s horrible how Rowling’s kids aren’t protected. You can’t take pictures of kids and publish them without parental consent in this country (yet somehow we see 8 million photos of Reese and Ryan’s kids every day). I work with kids and I know that you need release forms.

    Rowling can’t be expected to keep her kids locked at home just to protect their privacy. Yes people may see them in public but it’s another thing to have paps tracking every place she ever takes them.

    She looks real good without looking all cosmetic surgery. I guess a lot of money can do that.

    She looks real good because she always has, since the first book came out. She’s a beautiful woman. Ian Rankin has talked about Rowling before. I think he’s just so excited to mooch off the fame of being her neighbor that he’ll say anything he thinks people will listen to.

    This woman is so full of crap! She sucks at writing and I can’t believe billions of stupid people actually found this drab boring series entertaining. She should write a book about “How to lose your morals as a woman and succumb to the dumb men that treat you like dirt and undermind your intelligence”, which is how she loves to characterize her women. SHAME ON YOU JK ROWLING!

    JK Rowlings is a wonderful writer she has an incredible imagination. I wish had a piece of her talent to entertain so many people. She was magnificent in the Harry Potter series. It is just a matter of time until she produces another series that is just as equally moving as the last. I cannot wait for the next series to begin to be published so she can share again how wonderful she is. The world is blessed to have such a talented person to give us such fantasy to enjoy. We need this type of fantasy so we can deal with all the horror that is in this world we live in. People like JK was put on this earth to give us something to look forward to. As we all wait patiently for the next series to begin. It gives us something wonderful to look forward to . I know for myself I am anxiously waiting for the saga of whatever it is to begin.
