image for JK Rowling 'Carries On Writing Books' Shock
The one about the trampess sounds good

Juvenile Korner, or JK, Rowling, the authoress of the now-defunct Harry Potter children's series of books, has said she is already back at work penning two new works as she bids to leave the days of Hogwarts behind, and monopolise pastures new.

Her two current projects, which are totally unrelated to the Potter stories, and could not be further from their subject matter, do, however, feature some similarities.

The first is a detective mystery involving a boy, Henry Pottage, and his young friends Ron Weasel and Herman Grunge, who find a wand near a magic castle in Scotland, and peskily decide to investigate.

The other book is about a vagrantess, Harriet Rotter, who sleeps rough on platform 9.75 at Kings Cross Station in London, and spends her time begging for money and casting spells. One day, Rotter has the bright idea of writing a book about young magicians, and due to several pieces of miraculous good luck, she strikes a deal with a publisher, and becomes the biggest-selling authoress of all time.

Ms Rowling's latest bookess, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, sold more than 11 million copies during the first 24 hours after it went on sale, but only 43 copies since, giving rise to the rumour that it may have been "hyped-up".

The Scottish writeress was almost apologetic when asked why she has continued scribbling after making millions churning out gibberish for kids with the Potter books.

"I have bills to pay, you know", she said.

Make Monkey Woods's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
