Robert GalbraithAlthough she writes under the pen name J.K Rowling, pronounced like rolling, her name when her first Harry Potter book was published was simply Joanne Rowling Anticipating that the target audience of young boys might not want to read a book written by a woman, her publishers demanded that she use two initials, rather than her full name As she had no middle name, she chose K as the second initial of her pen name, from her paternal grandmother Kathleen Ada Bulgen Rowling She calls herself Jo and has said, No one ever called me Joanne when I was young, unless they were angry Following her marriage, she has sometimes used the name Joanne Murray when conducting personal business During the Leveson Inquiry she gave evidence under the name of Joanne Kathleen Rowling In a 2012 interview, Rowling noted that she no longer cared that people pronounced her name incorrectly.Rowling was born to Peter James Rowling, a Rolls Royce aircraft engineer, and Anne Rowling n e Volant , on 31 July 1965 in Yate, Gloucestershire, England, 10 miles 16 km northeast of Bristol Her mother Anne was half French and half Scottish Her parents first met on a train departing from King s Cross Station bound for Arbroath in 1964 They married on 14 March 1965 Her mother s maternal grandfather, Dugald Campbell, was born in Lamlash on the Isle of Arran Her mother s paternal grandfather, Louis Volant, was awarded the Croix de Guerre for exceptional bravery in defending the village of Courcelles le Comte during the First World War.Rowling s sister Dianne was born at their home when Rowling was 23 months old The family moved to the nearby village Winterbourne when Rowling was four She attended St Michael s Primary School, a school founded by abolitionist William Wilberforce and education reformer Hannah More Her headmaster at St Michael s, Alfred Dunn, has been suggested as the inspiration for the Harry Potter headmaster Albus Dumbledore.As a child, Rowling often wrote fantasy stories, which she would usually then read to her sister She recalls that I can still remember me telling her a story in which she fell down a rabbit hole and was fed strawberries by the rabbit family inside it Certainly the first story I ever wrote down when I was five or six was about a rabbit called Rabbit He got the measles and was visited by his friends, including a giant bee called Miss Bee At the age of nine, Rowling moved to Church Cottage in the Gloucestershire village of Tutshill, close to Chepstow, Wales When she was a young teenager, her great aunt, who Rowling said taught classics and approved of a thirst for knowledge, even of a questionable kind, gave her a very old copy of Jessica Mitford s autobiography, Hons and Rebels Mitford became Rowling s heroine, and Rowling subsequently read all of her books.Rowling has said of her teenage years, in an interview with The New Yorker, I wasn t particularly happy I think it s a dreadful time of life She had a difficult homelife her mother was ill and she had a difficult relationship with her father she is no longer on speaking terms with him She attended secondary school at Wyedean School and College, where her mother had worked as a technician in the science department Rowling said of her adolescence, Hermione a bookish, know it all Harry Potter character is loosely based on me She s a caricature of me when I was eleven, which I m not particularly proud of Steve Eddy, who taught Rowling English when she first arrived, remembers her as not exceptional but one of a group of girls who were bright, and quite good at English Sean Harris, her best friend in the Upper Sixth owned a turquoise Ford Anglia, which she says inspired the one in her books.

    Finally, the extra writings by our QUEEN OF MAGIC collected in a professional edited ebook.And in this one dwell the brave at heart.Stories about heroism and hardship From McGonagall s grief to Lupin s lifelong beastly affliction..To the crazy hobbies of Sybill Trelawney Silvanus Kettleburn If there s one thing these stories prove, it s that heroism comes in all shapes, sizes and varieties whether it s Remus Lupin giving his life to save the wizarding world or Silvanus Kettleburn hurling Flobberworms at Death Eaters from his attic After all, you don t have to be a sword wielding Gryffindor to be a hero sometimes, all it takes is having your heart in the right place. Menirva McGonagall Her chapter and life pre Hogwarts was great insightful and deep.And the symmetry between her story and her mother was so touching and sad..specially her decision between Wand or Love which would be locked away. And I cracked with laughter in the William McGonagall unexpected too funny tragic poem.And then followed calculatedly perfect with a piece on Animagi was than perfect and professional Remus Lupin I didn t expected it d be that sad, I thought the editor was exaggera...

    You don t have to be a sword wielding Gryffindor to be a hero, sometimes all it takes is having your heart in the right place The second part in the Potter Presents series is at least as interesting as the first one We get to know Minerva McGonagall, Remus Lupin, Sybill Trelawney and Silvanus Kettleburn a little or a lot Most of it is information I already had, so I had set my hopes in Professor Kettlebur...

    Got deeper in Harry Potter s world here This is the first ebook in a series of three, so far collecting short stories written by J.K Rowling for the Potter website.In this first book, you ll get seven short stories focused in the themes of heroism against great menaces, hardship in challenging lives and dangerous hobbies in a world full of real magic.Thanks to these wonderful narratives, you ll get to know beyond of what you may got in the original Harry Potter s book series, various unforgettable characters and even one that you may need a moment to remember.Minerva McGonagall, Remus Lupin and Sybill Trelawney, all three have key relevant roles in the magical saga of Harry Potter, and certainly you got to know them fair well, but in this book, you ll get access to their past lives, before the beginning of Harry Potter s saga, and if you read carefully, with attention, you ll be able to deduce important details of other mentioned related characters.Oh, you ll have Silvanus Kettleburn too What Didn t you remember him Shame Shame on you And you hav...

    5 STARS well, that was a short return to the Wizarding World that I savoured You don t have to be a sword wielding Gryffindor to be a hero sometimes, all it takes is having your heart in the right place. If you re not a Potterhead, this book will probably seem to you as just a compilation of facts and backstories about nonexistent people that you ve got nothing to do with but if you are, this short book will delight you with things you didn t know about the making of Harry Potter, your favourite characters like Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin, or the ones you love to hate like Professor Trelawney It s less in a storytelling tone and an account of their pasts, with J.K Rowling s thoughts tagged along I found its writing and whole design appropriate for its goal with small precious jokes and heartbreaking revelations, I got than I d expected.If there s one thing these stories prove, it s that heroism comes in all shapes, sizes and varieties whether it s Remus Lupin giving his life to save the wizarding world or Silvanus Kettleburn hurling Flobberworms at Death Eaters from his attic.In Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies, we learn about Animagi and the complex magic of turning your body into an animal s and...
