Is J.K. Rowling writing detective novel

J.K. Rowling's neighbour says his wife spotted the Harry Potter author in an Edinburgh cafe writing a crime detective novel, of all things. Although the report which appeared on the Sunday Times has not been confirmed, Rowling wrote many of the early Harry Potter books in those cafes in order to save on her heating bill. Today she is Britain's richest woman billing in at $1 billion, according to Forbes.

In an interview with The Associated Press last month, Rowling said she believed she was unlikely to repeat the success of the Potter series, but confirmed she had plans to work on new books.
