J. K. ROWLING


It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.
If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.


Joanne"Jo"Rowlingis a British novelist best known as the author of theHarry Potterfantasy series. The books have gained worldwide attention, won multiple awards, and sold more than 400million copies.

Rowling has led a "rags to riches" life story, in which she progressed from living on state benefits to multi-millionaire status within five years.

Seven years after graduating from university, Rowling saw herself as a failure.Her marriage had failed, and she was jobless with a dependent child, but she described her failure as liberating and allowing her to focus on writing.During this period Rowling was diagnosed with clinical depression and contemplated suicide.Her illness inspired the characters known asDementors, soul-sucking creatures introduced in the third book.Rowling signed up forwelfare benefits, describing her economic status as being "poor as it is possible to be in modern Britain, without being homeless."

In the 15 years since she published her first Harry Potter, Rowling has become both universally known and almost unrecognizable. The scruffy redheadused to write in the cafes of Leith has slowly transformed into aglossy couture blonde, unknowable behind animpregnable sheen of wealth and control. Once a penniless single mother, she became the first person on earth to make $1 billion by writing books.

Rowling, now Britain's 13th wealthiest woman—wealthier than even the Queen—does not plan to write any more books in the series, but has not entirely ruled out the possibility.
