There’s probably one or two (ahem) Harry Potter fans on here… in fact, we’re prepared to take a guess that a large amount of you are Potter fans – I know I am and my son is currently halfway through the final book – so I reckon we’re all very excited at the idea of JK Rowling returning to the world of children’s fiction.

Well, it looks lie it may well happen soon…

Speaking to Radio 2’s Simon Mayo, the Potter author said: “I have an idea for a children’s book, actually I have written part of a children’s book that I really love, so I’m definitely going to finish that. There will be another children’s book.”

Rowling was on the show as here crime writing alter ego Robert Galbraith, promoting her new book Career of Evil, the latest book in the Cormoran Strike detective series and despite having written three books under the name, Rowling is confident she will return as, em, herself: “I’m not going to give you an absolute date because things are busy… but I’d definitely write more novels as JK Rowling – novels in the plural, I have so many ideas.”

She added: “I sometimes worry I’ll die before I’ve written them all out. That’s my midlife crisis – that I will leave this earth without having written them all.”

We all hope this doesn’t happen because the idea of a potential series to rival Harry Potter is a very, very tantalising one, indeed…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
