Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling has revealed that she wants to pen a novel about a stand-up comedian.

The 42-year-old novelist says that she has a "real thing" about the comedy idea, though she has not started working on it as yet.

"That is not what I'm writing though, so if something comes out next week, I'm not doing it," British tabloid Daily Mirror quoted her as saying.

Rowling is currently planning two books—a "political fairytale" and an adult story.

Meanwhile, the author appeared in court on Monday in a last-ditch attempt to get an injunction banning the media from publishing a picture of her son David, which was clicked on a family outing when the child was 18 months old.
