She has said that she has already written the last chapter of the final book in which she tells what happens to everybody after school.

At that point, Rowling will be able to retire and never work another day in her life. The question then becomes, does she enjoy writing? Will she want to create more stories because that has become her life work?

If she continues writing, she can go two ways which are not mutually exclusive. She can write books that are not set in the same world as Harry Potter. The success of Harry would guarantee her ability to get at least one non-related book published.

Or, she can write more books in the same world as Harry Potter. I think that she's done with Harry as a central character after Book 7. Writing about Harry as a 25 year old would require a book clearly aimed at adult readers, and it would be tough to pull it off. But she can certainly write a book or series of books about what happens to Harry's kids when they attend Hogwarts. There are plenty of opportunities to show how things do and do not change in the course of a generation. We could see life lessons like, "Every generation must conquer evil for itself."
