Harry Potter is loved throughout the world - and so is his creator. Joanne Kathleen (J.K.) Rowling is a true wizard, a woman who has the ability to recall vividly her days as a a child and capture those wild, wonderful, difficult times - an ability that helps make her creation, Harry Potter, seem so real.

She may have lots of money now, but that wasn't always so. Ms Rowling struggle financially for a long time after her divorce In fact, she sounds like a lot of women I know or have met. And she did her writing in the back of a coffee shop! It never ceases to amaze me that people can work like that. This title is a quick intro to her life, well written and very readable.
