Rowling says in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, set to air on Friday, that she may write more Harry Potter books even though she ended the series about the boy wizard in 2007 in a seventh novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which will be released as a two-part film.

"I could definitely write an eighth, ninth, tenth," People magazine quoted Rowling, 45, as saying. "I'm not going to say I won't. I don't think I will. I feel I am done, but you never know."

Rowling has sold more than 400 million books and in 2003, the UK Newspaper the Times deemed her richer than Queen Elizabeth II. It said in 2008 that Rowling makes more than $4 million a week and is worth more than $880 million.

Rowling, who once wrote her novels in a coffee shop because she could not afford to pay for heating bills, says she still worries about money. People quoted her as saying that she also once declined an offer by Michael Jackson, who died in 2009, to turn her books into a musical.
