JK Rowling

JK Rowling: A Year in the Life… I recently happened across this documentary on Youtube, scrolling through videos on various topics, looking to be entertained on a windy, rainy afternoon.

Watching the first few minutes and finding them intriguing, I uttered a short I squeak of delight, jumped up to make a bowl of popcorn, climbed gleefully into bed minutes later and settled down in fascination to watch the entire feature. I was not disappointed.

“What’s the worst that could happen? So it gets turned down by every publisher in London, big deal.”

And yet, the book series has sold over 450 million copies worldwide, been translated into 77 different languages and declared a global cultural phenomenon, with Rowling being the first person to become a billionaire by writing books… 🙂
