J.K. Rowling: Author explains how to become a writer by profiling the life story of the woman who overcame adversity to write the highly successful Harry Potter book series.

As a young girl, Joanne Kathleen Rowling loved to make up stories and dreamed of becoming an author. Yet as she struggled to find a career and raise her daughter by herself, she kept her passion for writing a secret. Today her stories set records in the publishing industry, serve as the basis for popular films, and captivate audiences young and old around the world. Rowling's literary creation, Harry Potter, has made her one of England's wealthiest women and one of the most celebrated figures in the world. This book has not been authorized by J.K. Rowling.
