Joanne Kathleen Rowling (a.k.a. J. K. Rowling) had always wanted to be a writer. In fact, she never knew what else she wanted to do with her life. She wandered from job to job before she thought up Harry Potter and the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She was ecstatic when Bloomsbury Press offered to publish her book for a few thousand dollars. But the success of the book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, took everyone by surprise. Since then she has gone on to publish six more books in the series and they have all been made into major motion pictures. Faced with almost overnight fame and fortune, Jo (as she likes to be called ) still stays grounded. She readily admits that the most important thing to her is spending time with her husband and raising their children. Interest Level: Grades 4-8 Reading Level: Grades 4-5 32 Pages 6" X 9" Full-color laminated covers Side-sewn, reinforced library binding Full-color photos throughout Chronology Further reading Works consulted Discography or Filmography as applicable.
