Bestselling author JK Rowling has given a rare interview to Oprah Winfrey to talk about her life, career and the possibility of another Harry Potter book.
The 45-year-old British writer talked to Winfrey for the first time [www.goldengooseshoesit.com
] from Edinburgh, Scotland in an interview to be broadcast on Friday (local time), her US publisher Scholastic confirmed.
Rowling spoke about coping with fame, pressure and "shares her thoughts on the possibility of ever writing another Harry Potter book in the future," Scholastic said in a statement.
She told Winfrey she realised her books about the boy wizard were popular and her life had changed forever when she saw an enormous line of fans outside a large store during her second US book tour.
She said the moment "felt Beatle-esque".
The author, who does not grant many interviews, also told Winfrey the cool composure she displayed at the height of 'Harry Potter mania' was not quite what it seemed.
"At that point, I kept saying to people, 'yeah I'm coping' ... but the truth was there were times when I was barely hanging on by a thread," she said, according to an early excerpt of the interview.
