According to History.com, J. K. Rowling, the author of the beloved Harry Potter series, was born on this date in 1965. I confess to being an unabashed and loyal fan from the very first word, even though I was well past my childhood when the first book in the series was published.
And yet, as much as I’ve enjoyed her books, its the real-life story of her (not so easy) path to becoming a writer and publication that I remember when I receive yet another rejection in the mail.
As far as I’m concerned, I’m delighted by her over-the-top success and admiration for her storytelling, which has entertained children and adults alike; and will probably continue to do so for generations to come. Happy Birthday, Ms. Rowling.
And many, many, more.
