J.K. Rowling

J.K. Rowling is a splendid author who overcame life hardships and a lot of publishers rejections. I have literally grown up reading her books up to late hours with my eyes widely open starving for more adventures. Joanne alongside with Tolkien introduced and firmly pushed me into a fantasy genre of books. Let’s say she was a waypoint and a milestone for my sensitiveness, empathy and my crank for fantasy. I like her writing and I’m looking in the future for new books from Harry Potter realm.
