Mythmaker The Story of J.K. Rowling by Amy Sickels


Mythmaker The Story of J.K. Rowling by Amy Sickels

Virtually everyone knows her name and the names of her wizarding characters. As the 13th richest woman in England, she earned her fortune in a rather unusual way - by writing books. J.K. Rowling is one of the most popular authors of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Her books about Harry Potter's adventures are widely read by adults and children alike and have been translated into more than 64 languages. With the recent completion of the seven-book series, Rowling's popularity is at an all-time high. But Rowling didn't start out famous. As a single mother, she struggled for many years before her books were published. Mythmaker: The Story of J.K. Rowling, Second Edition is fully updated to tell her inspiring life story.


These books are great reports...they will also interest youth who want to know more about their favorite writers.
