Rowling to Write Adult Novel

    EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND - NOVEMBER 07:  J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter novels, buries a time capsule to mark the start of building work on a research clinic for patients with multiple sclerosis on November 7, 2011 in Edinburgh, Scotland. The clinic at the University of Edinburgh is being set up following a £10 million donation from Ms Rowling and is named after her mother, Anne, who died of multiple sclerosis aged 45.

    Now that Harry Potter is all grown up, J.K. Rowling will write for people his age. The British author announced Thursday that she is coming out with a new novel, and it’ll be her first for adults. There are few details yet and no word on a title, subject matter, or publication date. But she will get a new publisher in Little, Brown. “My next book will be very different to the Harry Potter series,” Rowling said in a press release. “The freedom to explore new territory is a gift that Harry’s success has brought me.”
