We’re all familiar with the rise of J.K. Rowling as a literary powerhouse. The single mother began by scribbling her ideas for Harry Potter on a napkin and now she’s one of the wealthiest women in the world. And to those of us who grew up with “the boy who lived,” J.K. approaches goddess status. From her mind sprung Harry, Hogwarts, Ron, Hermione, Dumbledore, Dobby, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named… basically, for some of us, our childhood.
