In a recent interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, celebrated author J.K. Rowling revealed that she has scribbled a manuscript across a party dress currently hanging in her closet.

“The theme of my 50th birthday—which I held at Halloween, even though that’s not really my birthday—was come as your own private nightmare,” Rowling told Amanpour. “And I went as a lost manuscript. And I wrote over a dress most of that book.”

Rowling did not detail what the manuscript is about, however, fans should really not hold their breaths as the author is still uncertain whether she will publish the story or not.

“So that book; I don’t know whether it will ever be published, but it’s actually hanging in a wardrobe currently,” she added.

Rowling’s brainchild, Harry Potter, recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. The first novel was published in the United Kingdom on June 26, 1997. Harry Potter books are within the fantasy genre, which follows a young wizard, Harry Potter, and his adventures in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Until now, Harry Potter books have been translated into 74 languages with the addition of different scripts, such as English Braille and Serbian Cyrillic. (asw)
