    The following is an excerpt from Read J.K. Rowling’s new Harry Potter story about a singing sorceress

    J.K. Rowling is serving up another dose of Harry Potter for her die-hard fans, this time in the form of a biography of one of her favorite, albeit lesser-known characters in the Harry Potter universe.

    Celestina Warbeck is one of my favourite ‘off-stage’ characters in the Harry Potter series, and has been part of the Potter world ever since its inception, making an early appearance in the short-lived ‘Daily Prophet’ series I produced for members of the equally short-lived fan club run by my British publisher, Bloomsbury. Although we never lay eyes on Celestina during the whole seven volumes of the Potter books, I always imagined her to resemble Shirley Bassey in both looks and style. I stole her first name from a friend with whom I worked, years ago, at Amnesty International’s Headquarters in London; ‘Celestina’ was simply begging to be scooped up and attached to a glamorous witch.

    The biography also includes a song. Here’s Celestina and the Banshees at Orlando Resort singing “You Stole My Cauldron But You Can’t Have My Heart.”
