J.K Rowling. The sister of one sibling. The mother of 3 children. The inspiration for her books. Her jobs, awards and the writer of the harry potter books, how does she juggle it. She must be magic but as Joanne Rowing always said ‘we do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all of the power we need inside ourselves already’.
J.K Rowling was born 31 July, 1965, Yate Gloucestershire, England. she has 1 older sister and lived with both her mum and dad (Peter and Anne). When Joanne was four the family moved to a close by town called Winter Bourne and when she was nine they moved to a little church cottage with involved her mother’s illness that caused her mum to die and it also involved her father moving away from the family. After that she wrote this ‘if you want to know what a mans like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals’
When J.K Rowling left her family she drove to a train station and that’s were her train to London from Manchester got delayed and in that spare time she started to think of the train station for the harry potter books and that’s how the train station 9 and ¾ was written into her books but a few years back when J.K was in collage she met a friend that gave the idea of Hermione Granger the witch with muggle (human) parents. Also when she was in primary school her headmaster inspired her to create the headmaster of Hogwarts, professor albert Dumbledore.
Before Joanne Rowling started to write her books she had other jobs like:
• An English teacher in Portugal
• A researcher
• And a bilingual secretary guard of the amnesty international.
Over the years J.K won some awards. Here is some that she won:
• Good readers award
• Evening standard theatre award
• Red cross award
• Sounds of crime award
• Beacon award
• The British award and many more.
J.K Rowling writ the best-selling book series with the harry potter books in the history of books because she sold at least 400 million of them in one year. J.K has a lot of favourite books. Here is her most favourites:
• Team of rivals
• Black beauty
• Little women
• Mant mouse
• The story of the treasure seekers
• Secrets of the flesh
• I captured the castle
• The ilid homer
Joanne wrote Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in 1998 and sold 400 million and she got the bests selling series award in history. Harry is 12 and locked in his bed room from his uncle and aunt because he got in trouble for saying magic. His friends rescue him and go back to Hogwarts of witch and wizardry. On the way through the halls they encounter books, notes and secrets that shouldn’t be told. I would really enjoy the frights and scares I got reading this book and watching the movie but I think that young children like under the age of 8 might have nightmares.
