My Letter From J.K.Rowling

Dear Friend,

Firstly, let me say that although this is a form response, there is a very good chance I read your letter; I always look through the mail, but I receive so much these days that unfournately it is not possible to answer everything individually. Nevertheless, it means the world to me that Harry Potter fans take the time and trouble to write and share their thoughts, feelings and life experiences, their favourite characters and parts of the books, not to mention my involvement with the films, Harry has been, and continues to be, one of the most important things in my life.

If you have seen Deathly Hallows Part II, I hope you agree that it was the best of the series! The premiere was one of the most emotional nights of my life. Amid all the sadness of the film series ending, however, I meant what I said on the red carpet; whether you choose to come back to the page or the screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.

You might know that I have been spending a lot of time on a project called Pottermore.com, which is a website where the Harry Potter stories have come to life in a completely new form! By joining (which is free) you will be able to access lots of extra information and back-story, written by me. Some was dug out of old boxes, and some is new, and it has been a wonderful way of using all the extra bits and pieces still swirling around in my imagination...

I am working on new books, too. I very much doubt that I will ever again publish anything that matches Harry for popularity, but my need to invent stories remains undiminished. It is great fun to enjoy entirely private fictional worlds again. I feel as though I am back in the days when I was the only person in the world who knew Harry, Ron, and Hermione (a very odd thought, now).

Thank you again for writing to me. I often reflect on how fortunate I am to have made connections with so many wonderful people, letters like yours are among the greatest rewards of writing.

With very best wishes,
J.K.Rowling
