Posted 2nd October by roonwit Jo reads and answers questions at the White House Egg Roll Jo was one of the authors appearing at this year's White House Easter Egg Roll, where she read from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and then answered questions from the gathered children.
We now have a transcript of her answers here. In particular she said She might want to do something else with Harry's world in the future but has no plans at present.
Her favourite characters at the moment apart from Harry, Ron and Hermione are Dumbledore who she misses mostHagrid and Lupin, also Snape because she loved writing him. She wouldn't want a house elf because she would find them creepy, and would free any in her house.
Hermione was the first character she thought of after Harry. She was originally going to be the Potters' neighbour when their house was destroyed. She was inspired by the fate of the Spinal Tap drummers to have a different Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher each year.
She is writing other books but is having a break from being published. However she is sure that she will bring out another book in the "not too distant future" though it won't be Harry.

Posted 17th January by roonwit Reports from Beedle the Bard release tea party Reuters has a report from the Beedle the Bard release tea party.
In it Jo reveals that the inspiration to publish Beedle the Bard came from the fans, saying "There was quite a lot of high feeling from Harry Potter fans that only someone who had two million pounds could afford to read the book.
I thought 'fair point', so I thought 'I'll publish it and then the charity can have that money too'. More details of the questions asked are emerging. TLC has a report revealing that none of the invented Harry Potter locations are based on actual places. CBBC reports that Jo "can remember some teachers thinking that I was good at story writing, and I used to love it when my stories were read out to the class.
In the extract Jo says I admit that, at first glance, the extract I've chosen for The Birthday Book might not seem particularly celebratory, given that it has for its subject my hero walking to what he believes will be certain death.
But when Harry takes his last, long walk into the heart of the Dark Forest, he is choosing to accept a burden that fell on him when still a tiny child, in spite of the fact that he never sought the role for which he has been cast, never wanted the scar with which he has been marked.
As his mentor, Albus Dumbledore, has tried to make clear to Harry, he could have refused to follow the path marked out for him. In spite of the weight of opinion and expectation that singles him out as the "Chosen One", it is Harry's own will that takes him into the Forest to meet Voldemort, prepared to suffer the fate that he escaped sixteen years before.
The destinies of wizards and princes might seem more certain than those carved out for the rest of us, yet we all have to choose the manner in which we meet life: Birthdays are often moments for reflection, moments when we pause, look around, and take stock of where we are; children gleefully contemplate how far they have come, whereas adults look forwards into the trees, wondering how much further they have to go.
This extract from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is my favourite part of the seventh book; it might even be my favourite part of the entire series, and in it, Harry demonstrates his truly heroic nature, because he overcomes his own terror to protect the people he loves from death, and the whole of his society from tyranny.
The children present will be from local schools or from competitions run by the publishers Scholastic's is here. Jo will read to them and they will see one of the original seven copies of The Tales of Beedle the Bard on loan from Barry Cunningham which remains on display there for the next month.
