Transcript of J.K. Rowling-Author of Harry Potter

J.K. Rowling is a British author best known for the Harry Potter series. The books have gained worldwide attention, won many awards, and sold more than 400 million copies. (Bibel)

J.K. Rowling

The editorial team advised Rowling that she should not publish under her real name, Joanne Rowling, because boys would not read a book written by a woman.
(Bibel)



The idea for the Harry Potter books came to Rowling in 1990 when she was on a train ride to London, she began thinking about a boy wizard and all his adventures, when she reached London she started writing the story. (Bibel)

The purpose of this presentation is to introduce J.K. Rowling, help people know more about her, and understand where her inspiration to write her books came from.

J.K. was born on July 31st, 1965 in England. (Shapiro) Her real name is Joanne Rowling. She doesn't have a middle name and instead borrowed the "K" from her grandmother, Kathleen. (Shara)






Rowling struggled to get her first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone published. (The name was changed to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in the United States.) The book was rejected by over a dozen publishers. (Bibel)


J.K. married and while that did not last long she had her first daughter Jessica. She became as poor as she could be without being homeless.
(unknown)
J.K. started writing Harry Potter on a napkin in a coffee shop.
J.K Rowling started writing six months before her mother died. She never shared any of her thoughts or ideas or told her mother about Harry Potter.
14 years later J.K. wrote 7 top selling books which inspired 8 hit movies. The Harry Potter brand is estimated at $15 billion
J.K. Rowling went from being unemployed to becoming a multi-millionaire in five years

quotes

It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.
-J.K. Rowling



It is our choices... that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
-J.K. Rowling


J.K. Rowling is one of the best authors of all time. She had to endure very hard times to become successful and her writing was inspired by a tragedy in her life.
Most people are familiar with Harry Potter. I hope this presentation has helped you get to know the genius who created him.
