This Is What J.K Rowling Has Been Doing Since Harry Potter

After the Harry Potter series ended years ago, J.K Rowling has been doing more awesome things.

After the huge success of J.K Rowling's Harry Potter books, the author has been up to more 'magical' things since the series ended, according to Telegraph.

In 2007, she created a new series as a spin off of the Potter books, known as the "The Tales of Beedle the Bard." At first, there were only the original manuscripts available. But, when one sold at an auction, she decided to publish.

In 2011, the website Pottermore became live. Pottermore is a way for Harry Potter fans to keep the craze going, and J.K Rowling continuously publishes short stories to the site every so often. Even Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy, has joined the site.

A year later, in 2012, J.K Rowling came off the Forbe's billionaire list, and for a good reason. Although J.K Rowling became one of the richest women in the world, she donated so much of it to charity, including a charity she started called 'Lumos' , that she could no longer be called a billionaire.

Then, in 2013,  J.K Rowling released another book, called 'The Casual Vacancy', six years after the last Harry Potter book came out. The book reached the bestseller's list and has since been turned into a T.V show.

Later that year, J.K Rowling wrote two novels under a pen name, Robert Galbraith- 'A Cuckoo's Calling' and 'The Silkworm', which also hit the top of the charts.

Now, J.K Rowling is working on another book to be published this year, called 'Very Good Lives', which is actually a written version of her 2008 commencement speech at Harvard.

As you can see, this spellbound author has done so much since Harry Potter, and we hope to see her on the bookshelves as the years go on!
