The Harry Potter author who has enchanted the world for the last three decades has written another fairy tale, according to CNN

But this is a story that may never be published.

J.K. Rowling wrote the secret manuscript by hand across her 50th birthday party dress, the author disclosed during an interview about her children’s charity Lumos. She made the disclosure while revealing her worst fears to interviewer Christiane Amanpour, including why she’s determined to put an end to orphanages.

“The theme of my 50th birthday, which I held at Halloween, even though that’s not really my birthday, was come as your own private nightmare,”Rowling told Amanpour. “And I went as a lost manuscript.

“And I wrote over a dress most of that book. So that book, I don’t know whether it will ever be published, but it’s actually hanging in a wardrobe currently.”
