JK Rowling, the writer of 'Harry Potter' series, has ended her 15-year-old association with her book agent, Christopher Little. The author has confirmed the news and has said that it is a painful decision but it is taken with a good reason.
Reports say that the writer took the decision due to unavoidable reason. "This was a painful decision, especially as Ms Rowling had actively sought a different outcome for some weeks. However, it was not taken without good reason and it finally became unavoidable." The BBC quoted her spokesperson as saying.
Meanwhile, Mr Little's spokesperson has claimed that they are surprised and shocked by her decision. However, the agent admires her extraordinary talent and proud to be part of her successful journey.
It may be recalled that they have worked together close to 16 years. In fact, their association is considered as the most commercially successful relationship, as they have sold more than 400 million copies of 'Harry Potter' series worldwide.
Meanwhile, the eighth and final instalment in the film series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 (2011), is all set to release on July 13.
