Author has written 1 story for Harry Potter.
For our purposes I'm just a guy who loves to read.
I'd always said 'someday I'll write something of my own'.
Of course I'm still feeding my present and future stories a steady diet of imaginative and diverse characters, settings, plots and twists... I'm always looking for the next great story.
JK Rowling on H/Hr:
"I tried very hard to soften it, I suppose. Just because someone had a view on Harry/Hermione didn't mean they weren't genuine, or that they were necessarily misguided. In fact, I will say this, Steve Kloves who has been the script writer [on the Potter films, who is enormously insightful on the series and a very good friend, after he read book seven he said to me, 'You, know, I thought something was going to happen between Harry and Hermione, and I didn't know whether I wanted it or not.'
"I had always planned that Harry's true soul mate, which I stand by, is Ginny, and that Ron and Hermione have this combative but mutual attraction. They will always bicker, there will always be rough edges there, but they are pulled together, each has something the other needs.
"[Kloves] felt a certain pull between them at that point. And I think he's right. There are moments when [Harry and Hermione] touch, which are charged moments. One when she touches his hair as he sits on the hilltop reading about Dumbledore and Grindelwald, and the moment when they walk out of the graveyard with their arms around each other."
"Now the fact is that Hermione shares moments with Harry that Ron will never be able to participate in. He walked out. She shared something very intense with Harry.
"So I think it could have gone that way."
Jean has been on hiatus for over four months now and I'm afraid I don't have any good reason as to Why.
I'm still breathing, active in some projects that are not work - though very few - spending time with family.
All I can tell you is that I'll never let Jean 'die' the ignominious death of an incomplete story. Her tale will be told, all I can tell you is please be patient.
