E mōhio nuitia ana a J.K. Rowling hei kaituhi mō ngā pukapuka e whitu o Hare Pota, i whakaputaina rā i te tau 1997 ki te tau 2007. Kua neke atu i te 500 miriona ngā tānga o ngā haerenga mātātoa o Hare rātou ko Rāna, ko Heremaiani, e matatū nei te rongonuitanga, kua neke atu i te waru tekau ngā reo i whakawhitingia ai ngā kōrero, ā, e waru ngā hurihanga hei kiriata inā kē te nui o te mātakihia. I te taha o te terenga o ngā pukapuka o Hare Pota, i tuhi hoki ia i ētahi pukapuka poto e toru hei tāpirihanga ki ērā atu: Te Kuitiki i Roto i ngā Tau me Ngā Kātuarehe me ngā Wāhi e Kitea ai, hei tautoko i a Comic Relief me Lumos, tae atu ki Ngā Paki mō Pītara te Kaitito hei tautoko i a Lumos. I mahi tahi a J.K. Rowling rātou ko te kaihanga whakaari, ko Jack Thorne, ko te ringatohu, ko John Tiffany, kia haere tonu ngā kōrero mō Hare mā roto i te whakaari i runga atamira, ko Hare Pota me te Tamaiti kua Kangaia, i tīmata i Rānana i te tau 2016, ā, ināianei kei te ao whānui e whakaaturia ana. I taua tau anō, kātahi ia ka tīmata hei kaituhi kiriata i a Ngā Kātuarehe me ngā Wāhi e Kitea ai, koia nei te tuatahi o tētahi terenga e kitea ai te kaimātai kararehe-tūmatarau, a Nui Karamena, i puta ai nā te pukapuka tāpiri tuatahi. Kua tuhi hoki a J.K. Rowling i tētahi pakimaero takitahi, i a The Casual Vacancy, ā, ko ia te kaituhi o te terenga puka-taihara, o Strike, i raro i tōna ingoa huna, i a Robert Galbraith. Kua hurihia aua pukapuka e rua hei hōtaka pouaka whakaata. E hia nei ngā tohu me ngā whakahōnoretanga kua whiwhi ia, tae atu ki tētahi OBE me tētahi Companion of Honour mō ana mahi ki te ao tuhituhi me te ohaoha. Kei Koterangi rātou ko tana whānau e noho ana.
