As you probably know J.K.Rowling is an author known throughout the world for writing the Harry Potter series. Image result for j.k. rowling as a childShe is also my favourite author as she always sets the scene and has beautiful imagination in the way she describes the characters. So I am going to tell you some facts about J.K.Rowling you may not know about. Do let’s begin!

  • The K in J.K. is the initial of her grandmothers name – Kathleen. Rowling actually has no middle name of her own.   The young wizard Harry Potter shares the same birthday as J.K.Rowling; 31st July. J.K.Rowling says she snuck in her birthday as a reference for people to spot.
  • Rowling said she based the character of Hermionie Granger on her 11 year old self. Smart and knowledgeable.
  • She’s a big fan of the famous block building video game, Minecraft, which she plays with her son David.
  •  During her late twenties, including a failed marriage and struggling as an single Mum, Rowling went through a period of clinical depression. Her experience with this inspired her descriptions of the soul sucking Dementors which are introduced in the third Harry Potter novel.
  • Her net worth is estimated to be around $1 billion.  In 2004 Forbes magazine declared her the first person to become a U.S dollar billionaire primarily through her book writing.
  • J.K. Rowling’s parents actually met on a train from Kings cross. Potter fans will recognise Kings Cross as the magical gateway to the wizarding world.
  • J.K.Rowling wrote most of the first Harry Potter novel in a cafe in Edinburgh!
