J.K.ROWLING BIOGRAPHY
  • Born in Chepstow, Gwent in 1965, J.K. Rowling's
    favorite subjects in school were English and
    languages. J.K. went to Exeter University, worked
    as a secretary and as a teacher, but then fell on
    hard times. She and her husband divorced shortly
    after the birth of their daughter and J.K.
    Rowling ended up unemployed and living in a tiny
    flat in Edinburgh with her only child.

  • Of course, maybe it wasn't all bad because it was
    during this time that she wrote Harry Potter and
    The Sorcerer's Stone. The idea for the book came
    to J.K. Rowling while on a train ride.

7
THE WRITER
8
  • Bloomsbury Publishing bought Harry Potter and the
    Sorcerer's Stone (published in England as Harry
    Potter and the Philosopher's Stone) in 1997 and
    it was an instant success.

9
  • Since then there have been three more Harry tales
    - The Chamber of Secrets, The Prisoner of
    Azkaban, The Goblet of Fire and the massive Order
    of the Phoenix. J.K. Rowling has plans to write a
    book for each of the 7 years that Harry Potter is
    at Hogwarts

  • She won the Prize Príncipe de Asturias in 2003.
  • Because Rowlings literary creation prompts
    young people to identify with essential human
    values such as the ability to discern between
    good and evil and to recognise how important
    cooperation and solidarity are in lifes problems.

12
HARRY POTTER
  • The social transcendence of Rowling's literary
    creation lies in the fact that it has stimulated
    children from the entire world's ethnic groups
    and cultures to discover the joy of reading and
    to find in the fascinating adventures of Harry
    Potter a stimulus for their imagination and
    creativity.

  • She writes all of her books by hand. Ouch!
    She must have been pretty tired by the end of
    Order of the Phoenix.
  • When asked what mommies do, J.K. Rowling's
