JK Rowling

Every author is different in their styles and genres of writing. They write about what they think would interest the people, as well as what they enjoy to write. J.K. Rowling moved a lot during her childhood, and while she was near Bristol and Winterbourne is when she met her neighbors the "Potters". She liked them very much, and she had never forgotten them, and named her books using that name. J.K. Rowling was the author of the famous series about "Harry Potter".

It was the year 1990 when J.K. Rowling first conceived the ...view middle of the document...

In the year 1996, her book Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, later known as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, was published. Only 1,000 were printed, and 500 of those went to libraries. She received a grant from the Scottish arts council, which enabled her to write full time.

In the story Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the main overriding theme throughout these books is the struggle of good versus evil, the need to work as a team to fight against evil. According to my study of JK Rowling, I believe this battle of good and evil was really about her mother fighting against her incurable disease of multiple sclerosis. The worst time in her life was when her mother eventually died at a young age. The disease got to her mother, but according to my analysis of her, she wanted to prove to the world that this shouldn't happen, and the good should prevail. Harry Potter is put on this continuous quest to beat the evil, by the name of Voldermort.

JK Rowling went through life as a good person, and when her mother was diagnosed with this evil disease, her world changed. She wrote books based on her experience against this, but in a way most people wouldn't talk about their experience. The books about "Harry Potter" are fantastic, and can't wait to read the rest of the series.
