San Diego student Adam Carlin is the big man on campus after he was chosen to ask Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling a question on behalf of his 5th grade class.

The Turtleback Elementary School student asked Rowling, "Have you enjoyed returning to Harry's story again, and have any of the characters come back and surprised you?"

The author streamed her response to Carlin's class Thursday on Scholastic's website and discussed her next book, which she said will be for children. She said she has also been working on full biographies for some of her favorite characters in the books.

After remarking that "Turtleback" was a great name for an elementary school, Rowling responded that she feels like she will never really leave the characters of the Harry Potter series behind.

"I was quite heart-broken to finish writing," she said of the 7-book series. "It was very tough. Going back is ridiculously easy. I feel like I'm unlocking the door to my own house."

Thursday's webcast was part of the new Harry Potter Reading Club. It was watched by over 1 million fans, the publisher said.

Rowling currently lives in Edinburgh, Scotland and recently published an adult fictional novel titled The Casual Vacancy.
