New York: Will JK Rowling write another book about Harry Potter?

That`s among the topics discussed on Oprah Winfrey`s first interview with the author, whom she met recently in Edinburgh (EH`-dihn-bur-uh), Scotland. The interview will air Friday on Winfrey`s television program.

Harpo Productions announced Monday that Rowling will also discuss how she has coped with the fame brought on by her famous series. The books spawned a movie franchise and theme park. More than 400 million copies of the books starring the boy wizard have been sold worldwide.

Forbes magazine has ranked Rowling as one of the richest women in Britain, with an estimated wealth of $1 billion.
