J.K. Rowling is the author of the books about
Harry Potter played by Daniel Radcliffe in the films.
At university JK studied French and the
classics. Her first husband was Portuguese but unfortunately the
marriage was not a success. After, she was very sad and cried a
lot. She was unemployed and poor.
J.K. prepared the first Harry Potter book in
the Nicolsonís Cafť in Edinburgh. Then JK tried to find a
publisher. She offered her first book to twelve publishers in
England but they didnít like it. Fortunately, a little girl
called Alice enjoyed reading the first chapter. She is the
daughter of a publisher and he agreed to publish the book.
Six more books followed and the films of
course. Now JK isnít sad or worried about money. In fact, her
life is more magic than Harry Potterís!
