Author Titbit Of The Week

This week I'll be chatting about JK Rowling

This famous Author needs no introduction!

She is a British author best known as the creator of the Harry Potter fantasy series!
Rowling was born on 31 July 1965 in Yate, Gloucestershire, England. Rowling later read for a BA in French and Classics at the University of Exeter.

But did you know:

Aside from writing the Potter novels, Rowling is perhaps equally famous for her "rags to riches" life story, in which she progressed from living on welfare to multi-millionaire status within five years.

She also got the idea for Harry Potter while on a train trip from Manchester to London in 1990.

Rowling is estimated to be worth 1 Billion Dollars!

(Away for a bit, but I'll be back and read the comments)

She also wrote the first two books and the end of the 7th while sitting in a cafe called The Elephant Cafe in Edenburgh and Dobbie is named after her favorite store in Edenburgh.
