Harry Potter author JK Rowling has been spotted in an Edinburgh cafe writing drafts of crime novels. It was in one of the same cafes where she used to pen the boy wizard's adventures. After publishing, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", the final book in the Harry Potter saga, JK Rowling stated that she wanted to create something completely different and that the idea of wandering off to a cafe with a notebook and seeing where it took her would be bliss. After the phenomenal success of the Harry Potter books, it will be interesting to see what JK Rowling has in store for us next.

Meanwhile crime novelist Agatha Christie's hometown of Torquay is getting ready to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the publication of her famous book Death on the Nile next month. Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and spent most of her life there. The town is planning to host a ball and special shows as part of the celebrations.
