I don’t know about you, but Harry Potter is one of my all-time favorite series. I bought the first one for my granddaughter for Christmas the year it came out. I often buy books for gifts, and I have a policy: I always read them before I wrap them. I fell in love with Harry Potter right off and waited for each upcoming volume with the same eagerness as my granddaughter.

JK Rowling’s real story fascinates me almost as much as the one she fantasized. I found this wonderful interview with Oprah and wanted to share it with all you readers and writers out there. Enjoy!
