Harry Potter creator JK Rowling admits she could have a 'weak moment' and agree to write an eighth book . But the author, believed to be worth over £600 million, said that the boy wizard is unlikely to be the main character and possibly would not appear in the book at all so it would not strictly be a Harry Potter novel.

JK, known to her friends as simply 'Jo', whose seventh and "final" Harry Potter book 'The Deathly Hallows' smashed sales records earlier this year admitted that she had considered writing again in the near future.

Speaking from her Edinburgh mansion believed to be worth over a staggering £150 million, Rowling said,

"Of course there are times when I consider an 8th novel. Writing is in my blood. However I doubt whether Harry would be the central character or whether indeed he would be in it at all. To be honest it is unlikely that the book would include either wizards or magic. It will probably be a work of non fiction.

"At present I'm thinking about writing a biography on my childhood hero, the late and great Jock Stein. It would be almost impossible to include a child wizard if I am to remain true to his life story. The publishers would have difficulty passing it off as the 8th book in the series, and to be honest I would feel uncomfortable if they did.

"Readers buying it as a sequel to 'The Deathly Hallows' would be bitterly disappointed. Jock was a great man but supernatural he was not."

The mum of three, worth an estimated £950 million, [plus the house we mentioned earlier], admits that life without Harry is proving to be difficult.

"He was so much a part of my life. Through him I have managed to resolve many childhood issues and in some ways it feels like saying goodbye to the best therapist money could buy. As for what I will do in the immediate future to amuse myself, I'm not too sure. I'll perhaps buy Norfolk".

With an estimated fortune of anything between £5-50 billion pounds, this would be well within budget for the lady that gave a whole generation back it's magic.
