J.K. ROWLING


More words have probably been written about Jo Rowling than the content of all the Harry Potter books put together! Much of it is about her being a single parent who wrote the first Harry Potter novel in a café whilst her small daughter was asleep next to her.

There's a brief page about her on the Bloomsbury website though it would appear that the option to join their "Bloomsbury Web Club" has sadly disappeared, along with the option to receive an annual e-mail birthday card signed by J.K. Rowling.



Jo Rowling made an amazing offer to write two extra books linked with the Harry Potter Series -
"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" and "Quidditch through the Ages"
in aid of "Comic Relief", whose chief executive described Jo's offer as "beyond extraordinary".

These titles were published worldwide on 12th March in aid of the "Red Nose Day" on 16th March 2001.
According to their site, Comic Relief made an astonishing 61 *million* pounds in 2001.



At 4.30pm on Thursday 12th December 2002 Jo's handwritten "teaser" card about the plot of "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" was auctioned at Sotheby's to raise funds for "Book Aid International" - Ł24,000 was generated for 18,500 books for schools in Eritrea and other African countries.
To find out how your school or Company can help Book Aid, just click here.



Jo became an Ambassador for One Parent Families in 2000, making substantial donations to NCOPF (The National Council for One Parent Families) - for more info see the page here (scroll down). Jo became President of NCOPF on 16th November 2004.



J.K. ROWLING'S PERSONAL DESKTOP

As most of you will know, Jo Rowling launched her own website some time in 2004, so that's where to go for all the subsequent info on all things Harry Potter :) as well as many other aspects of Jo's life. Always an interesting place to visit! and a fair amount of "hidden stuff" if you have time to look around properly.

Just click here to view (there's a "children's entrance" and a "grown-up gateway").
