J.K Rowling, everybody knows her now because of her skillfully created wizarding world but what was her life like before the fame. Rowling was actually working as a secretary and a research for AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL when she came up for the idea of a book that went on to change her life that was back in 1990 and the idea came to her while she was waiting for a train that would take her from Manchester to London. HARRY POTTER books are the bestselling books in history. The publisher in the UK Bloomsbury says that they sold more than $500 million copies worldwide which makes then the biggest selling series ever. When reaching this number they took into account all of there seven HARRY POTTER books as well as the titles that came after the series as companion books “FANTASTIC BEATS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM”, “QUIDDITCH THROUGH THE AGES”, “THE TALES OF BEEDLE AND BARD”. This fantastic figure makes J.K. Rowling compete with Miguel de Ceruantes Dan Quixote.
She also writes under a PSEVDONYM being as famous as J.K Rowling can be sometimes a burelen people have very high expectations of you and releasing books on another genre different from the series that brought you fame can be difficult and gain mixed reviews from HARRY POTTER fans and J.K Rowling decided to use a Pseudonym when she decided release her crime novels she wanted the audience to be neutral to her new books she released the book CUCKOO’S CALLING under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith in April of 2013. Robert Galbraith was supposedly a British veteran but she uncovered her real identity only 3 months after the books releases when a friend of on of her solicitors tweeted about her secret identity.
She is extremely involved in charity work humanitarian causes, even if now she has all the money she could want Rowling was at one point before her books were published struggling with money she lived off of welfare as it was a quite challenge to get someone to publish her HARRY POTTER series ,with this experience still in the back of her mind she now donated a larger amount of her income to charity. Rowling founded a charitable trust in 2000 and the trust has an annual budget of $6.79million. they use their funds to support people dealing with poverty but they also donate it to organizations that deals with research. She could no longer be featured in billionaire top lists as she is no longer a billionaire, she donated so much of her money to charity which is 16% of her income in 2011 that amounts to $160million.
She has a lot to say when it comes to how the HARRY POTTER movies made. The famous author kept a very close involvement of the movie adaptation of her books one of her main demands was that the cast should be British but she was open to including other nationalities such as the Irish Richard Harris who played Dumbledore in HARRY POTTER and the goblet of fire.In the HARRY POTTER series character of HERMIONE is actually inspired by her own personality, she created the character of Hermione to resemble her younger self she 1st named the character “PUCKLE” but later on changed to Hermione granger. She made the decision to sell W.B (Warner Brothers) the rights to her first four books of HARRY POTTER series for $ 2million. STEVEN SPIELBERG who was in negotiations to direct the 1st movie, said he pictured it as an animation we don’t know how that would have turned out we’re glad that Rowling made sure the movies were kept very close to the books.
