In next month's issue of British Tatler, which goes on sale this week, Harry Potter author JK Rowling discusses her inability to deal with being in the spotlight due the success of the books, the pressure of fame and the premature death of her mother. She also mentions that she has written a children's book that even her publisher does not know about ('till now), and that she will be hosting a fundraising masked ball at Stirling Castle on March 17th.
Rowling on her mother:
I know I was writing Harry Potter at the moment my mother died. I had never told her about [him]. Barely a day goes by when I do not think of her. There would be so much to tell her, impossibly much.
