With just hours to go till the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows author JK Rowling sat down and talkedopens in new window about her feelings on ending the series.

She comments that "Harry's story comes to a definite end in book seven" and then mentions that she has no current plans to write more about the magical world that has had fans enthralled for years, but did comment that "I'm not going to say I'm never going to do it."

Rowling on finishing Deathly Hallows:

I felt terrible for a week.

The first two days in particular, it was like a bereavement, even though I was pleased with the book. And then after a week that cloud lifted and I felt quite lighthearted, quite liberated.

Finishing is emotional because the books have been so wrapped up with my life. It's almost impossible not to finish and look back to where I was when I started.
