作者簡介
  J.K. Rowling, a graduate of Exeter University, a teacher, and then an unemployed single parent, Rowling wrote Harry Potter when "I was very low, and I had to achieve something. Without the challenge, I would have gone stark raving mad." But Rowling has always written; her first book was called "Rabbit." "I was about six, and I haven't stopped scribbling since."
J.K. 羅琳( J.K. Rowling)
  全世界最會說故事的魔法媽媽 J.K.羅琳一九九○年,二十四歲的羅琳,坐在前往倫敦的誤點火車上,『哈利波特』咻地闖進了她的生命。透過車窗,彷彿看見了一個黑髮瘦弱、戴著眼鏡的小巫師在對她微笑。十年後,『哈利波特』成了風靡全球的童話人物。
  從小就喜歡寫作的羅琳,是個單親媽媽,因為找不到工作,只能靠著微薄的失業救濟金養活自已和女兒。為了逃離又小又冷的房間,她總是窩在住家附近的尼可森咖啡館裡寫作;因為沒錢點餐,所以每次只點上一杯卡布奇諾,一字一字的寫下『哈利波特』的故事。
  結果,《哈利波特》才一出版,便以驚人的魔力風靡全球,羅琳在一夕之間,就從不為人知的貧單親媽媽,一躍成為蜚聲國際的暢銷作家。《哈利波特》在全世界所折起閱讀風潮,更被譽為『文學界的披頭四狂熱』。羅琳說,《哈利波特》是一本會帶給她快樂的書,顯然毫無疑問的,對讀者來說也是一樣的!
