Joanne Jo Rowling

Joanne Jo Rowling(J.K. Rowling)

Early StrugglesSeven years after graduating from university, Rowling saw herself as a failure. Her marriage had failed, and she was jobless with a dependent child, but she described her failure as liberating and allowing her to focus on writing. During this period Rowling was diagnosed with clinical depression and contemplated suicide. Her illness inspired the characters known as Dementors, soul-sucking creatures introduced in the third book. Rowling signed up for welfare benefits, describing her economic status as being "poor as it is possible to be in modern Britain, without being homeless."

BiographyJoanne Rowling, best known as J.K. Rowling, was born on July 31, 1965, in Yate, England. She adopted her pen name, J.K., incorporating her grandmother's name, Kathleen, for the latter initial (Rowling does not have a middle name). As a child, Rowling often wrote fantasy stories which she frequently read to her sister. Her home life was complicated by her mother's illness and a strained relationship with her father. Rowling's mother Anne died after ten years suffering frommultiple sclerosis. She was writing Harry Potter at the time and had never told her mother about it. Anne’s death heavily affected Rowling's writing and she introduced much more detail about Harry's loss in the first book, because she knew how it felt.

RelationGrade level: 5th grade. Subject: writing. Regular education.Rowling’s story tells us that nothing is impossible. Everyone can make his miracle. In our education, we have to remember that no matter who we are, no matter where we are from, no matter what we are gonna through or have been through, no matter how we grow up, we shall have our own beliefs, we shall never lose hope, never give up, we shall insist on, keep working on. Every one is equal, has right to learn, study, be educated, be taught. Especially in our writing area, those what happen to us are writing materials, those life trifle and details can inspire us to come up with new ideas. “ You are my childhood.” She really creates this dream for lots of children. Most of children read her books, watch movies. So she finally succeed in her life. We have to believe ourselves that we can be successful, we can work hard to get what we want.
