Harry Potter Author J. K. Rowling Writes from Life

By  |  Published 

JK Rowling created Harry Potter books based on the important themes in her own life. This results in realistic (although fantastical in setting!) human experiences that her characters each react to in their own ways. Readers react to the intimacy with which Rowling paints her characters.

J.K. Rowling’s treatment of death in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows reflects her own fears and experiences. Thoughts on tyranny surface in the nature of Lord Voldemort, perhaps based on her collegiate study of African conflict. Readers and fans of the new Harry Potter movie can understand the writer behind it all by visiting J.K. Rowling‘s site online.
