​J.K. Rowling has become accustomed to a certain lifestyle. Following the release of her final series novel, the authoress of the ridiculously successful “Harry Potter” septet threw herself back into public controversy just months after the release of “Deathly Hallows” with the announcement of Dumbledore’s homosexuality. Late last February she announced a skeptically anticipated first ‘adult novel’, which she referred to as “new territory” that the success of “Potter” has afforded her. Being in the rare position of having both power and choice, Rowling must be respected for her choice to close Hogwarts and turn her attention back home.
