An MSN conversation with JK Rowling

With the impending release of her newest book, Harry Potter and the Half-Bold Prince, author and glamour queen JK Rowling took the time out to go on MSN Messenger to chat to me about the Potty phenomenon, her new puppy, and how Rupert Grint (who plays Ron in the films) is a complete and utter twat.

Pete says:
