LoveReading View on Harry Potter Hardback Boxed Set

February 2010 Guest Editor Robert Muchamore on Harry Potter.

Occasionally writers get to leave the house. Often it’s some kind of party. Chatter, wine, nibbles. At one of these I was accosted in the toilets by an elderly and renowned children’s author.

‘You young buggers!’ he blasted. ‘It’s so easy for you lot now. I toiled for years. Won every major award and still didn’t make a bean.’ Before Harry Potter, children’s fiction was in the doldrums.

About J.K. Rowling

J. K. (Jo) Rowling was born in Chipping Sodbury in the UK in 1965. She attended the University of Exeter in Devon where she studied French. Her parents hoped that by studying languages, she would enjoy a great career as a bilingual secretary. But as Jo recalls, 'I am one of the most disorganised people in the world and, as I later proved, the worst secretary ever.' She claims that she never paid much attention in meetings because she was too busy scribbling down ideas. When she was 26, she went to Portugal to teach English, which she really enjoyed.
