label History
J. K. Rowling is a Brittan writer, well-known from it popular books collection named Harry Potter .
In 1990, when she traveled with a train between Manchester and London, she had a powerful moment of inspiration, in this way in her mind appeared the outline of a little boy with round glasses, Harry Potter, that will become the main character for the seven books from the collection.
J. K. Rowling states that from the age of six I started to write without stopping, but I have never been so enthusiastic from other ideas. Simply, I was staying and thinking, during the four hours, waiting for the train to come and all of the details came into my mind, and a idea of the little boy with black hair, glasses and who did not know that he was a wizard, became so real for me. In the same time she said that she started with Harry and the rest of the characters and actions have came at her in a cursive way. The patterns for the figures that will appear in the books were real people she knew : teachers, friends and even herself as Hermione.
At the end of that year, her mother died and her work at Harry Potter help her to get over the unfortunate event. Even though this changed her writing in a radically way, she started to put more accent on the death of Harry’s parents, as she knew how he would have felt.
In 1993, J.K Rowling was diagnosed with clinical depression, fact that made her to think about committing suicide. Through this disease, Dementors came to light, those creatures that absorb the souls from people bodies.
