It’s only been seven years since J.K. Rowling finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but the titular boy wizard would turn 34 this year, according to a new story by the Scottish author.
Rowling treated Potter fans in June when she penned dispatches for a 2014 Quidditch World Cup on her site Pottermore in Ginny Weasley’s voice, but it was Rita Skeeter who broke the big story on Tuesday.
Writing as her gossipy animagus journalist, Rowling follows Dumbledore’s Army as they watch the Quidditch World Cup, giving readers a glimpse into their favorite characters’ futures without so much as a crystal ball for divination.
