Well all writers regret something after a book has been published. But for J.K. Rowling it was a big one. In fact, I have always wondered about it myself. Hermione and Ron… why? I guess I wasn’t alone.

Seven years after the beloved Harry Potterbook series came to an end, author J.K. Rowling has revealed that she regrets turning characters Hermione Granger with Ron Weasley into a couple.

In a Wonderland magazine interview with guest editor Emma Watson, who played the brainy Hermione in eight films, Rowling admitted that she thinks Potter and Granger would have been a better pairing.

“I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment. That’s how it was conceived, really,” Rowling, 48, told Watson, 23. “For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron.”

Like many who enjoy the fantasy genre, Akers started reading it as an adolescent. He was fascinated with Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and Bram Stoker's Dracula. He currently enjoys reading works by Dean Koontz, Heather Brewer, J.K. Rowling, and Rick Riordan. Akers enjoys creating a fantasy world with compelling storylines, while injecting humor and a touch of drama into the action as he did with his first book Terra Vonnel and the Skulls of Aries, which has received rave reviews. "I start every story with this thought: Where can I take my audience now? To me it's about the journey, the escape into a world filled with the fantastic and the unexpected. There is nothing like an adventure that takes you further from reality with every turn of the page." D.C. Akers was born in Texas and after spending several years working in accounting, Akers began to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a writer.
