J. K. Rowling
There is no way in hell that I could have picked any other author for this months post. Having re-read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and Chamber of Secrets AND doing my MA dissertation on her most loved series there was no way that anyone else had a look in. My idol and the woman that gave me something to really look forward to in my childhood. The woman that made reading 'cool' again. The woman that created such a huge, ingenious phenomenon from her mind alone, she definitely deserves this post. She writes wonderfully and is so incredibly clever. I have always appreciated the Harry Potter books but now that I am reading them as an adult and post-degree I really truly appreciate exactly how incredibly intelligent and creative Ms. Rowling is.
“Whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.”
The best day of my life.
