Author Spotlight: J.K. Rowling

I grew up on Harry Potter. J.K. Rowling was not so much as a person as an idea - the person who created Harry Potter. I didn't really think too much about whoever this "J.K." person was. As long as they kept on pumping out Harry Potter books, I was happy.

And then I decided I wanted to be a writer. And all of a sudden, I was a bit more interested this J.K. Rowling character.

So, it turns out she's a complete badass. This is probably obvious to anyone who knows the Harry Potter books - because COME ON - but did you know that she created the series while raising a small child on welfare?
