J.K. Rowling appears to be a very busy person at the moment. Last night she tweeted out that she is working on a new novel, which has fans speculating that Harry Potter may be coming back in some capacity. This is in no way hinted at by the author, but some like to let their mind run wild. She is also campaigning for Lumos, which keeps children out of harmful situations, and, she is currently busy penning the screenplay for a brand new Warner Bros. trilogy that ties directly into the Harry Potter franchise.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a book written by J.K. Rowling that is actually a part of the Harry Potter universe and used as a text book at Hogwarts academy. It is 'written' by Newt Scamander, who travels the world to document all of the magical creatures living amongst us humans. And this idea sets up the story that will play out in the first movie, set for release November 2016.
Though she has a lot on her plate, that didn't keep J.K. Rowling from having a little bit of fun with her fans. Though she hasn't revealed which novel she is currently working on, probably the Cormoran Strike book number three she teased in July, she did take time to tweet out a riddle for fans. Read through and see if you can figure out what it means...The solution comes at the end!

.@peruseproject See, now I'm tempted to post a riddle or an anagram. Must resist temptation... must work...— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) October 5, 2014

#helpfulhint The solution is the first sentence of a synopsis of Newt's story. It isn't part of the script, but sets the scene.— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) October 7, 2014
