Joanne K. Rowling [ˌd͡ʒəʊˈæn ˈkeɪ ˈrəʊlɪŋ], OBE , bekannt als J. K. Rowling oder unter ihrem Pseudonym Robert Galbraith, ist eine britische Schriftstellerin, die mit einer Reihe von Romanen um den Zauberschüler Harry Potter berühmt wurde. Die Mittelinitiale „K“, die für den Vornamen ihrer Großmutter „Kathleen“ steht, fügte Rowling selbst hinzu.

2004 schätzte das Forbes Magazine Rowlings Vermögen erstmals auf eine Milliarde US-Dollar. Damit wäre sie unter den Schriftstellern der Weltgeschichte die Erste. In einem 2007 veröffentlichten Interview dementierte sie diese Summe jedoch. 2012 wurde sie schließlich von Forbes aus der Liste der Dollar-Milliardäre entfernt.

„The Potter books in general are a prolonged argument for tolerance, a prolonged plea for an end to bigotry, and I think it's one of the reasons that some people don't like the books, but I think that it's a very healthy message to pass on to younger people that you should question authority and you should not assume that the establishment or the press tells you all of the truth.“

— Kennilworthy Whisp
Context: I think most of us if you were asked to name a very evil regime would think of Nazi Germany. … I wanted Harry to leave our world and find exactly the same problems in the Wizarding world. So you have to the intent to impose a hierarchy, you have bigotry, and this notion of purity, which is a great fallacy, but it crops up all over the world. People like to think themselves superior and that if they can pride themselves on nothing else, they can pride themselves on perceived purity. … The Potter books in general are a prolonged argument for tolerance, a prolonged plea for an end to bigotry, and I think it's one of the reasons that some people don't like the books, but I think that it's a very healthy message to pass on to younger people that you should question authority and you should not assume that the establishment or the press tells you all of the truth.

„They see it for what it is... It is a fantasy world and they understand that completely.“

— Kennilworthy Whisp
Context: I absolutely did not start writing these books to encourage any child into witchcraft. … I'm laughing slightly because to me, the idea is absurd. I have met thousands of children now, and not even one time has a child come up to me and said, "Ms. Rowling, I'm so glad I've read these books because now I want to be a witch." They see it for what it is... It is a fantasy world and they understand that completely.

„Depression is the most unpleasant thing I have ever experienced. … It is that absence of being able to envisage that you will ever be cheerful again. The absence of hope.“

— Kennilworthy Whisp
Context: Depression is the most unpleasant thing I have ever experienced. … It is that absence of being able to envisage that you will ever be cheerful again. The absence of hope. That very deadened feeling, which is so very different from feeling sad. Sad hurts but it's a healthy feeling. It's a necessary thing to feel. Depression is very different. As quoted in [http://www.accio-quote.org/articles/2000/0600-times-treneman.html "J. K. Rowling : The Interview," by Ann Treneman in The Times (30 June 2000)]

„Dumbledore knows pretty much everything anyway, but that Hermione has read it somewhere.“

— Kennilworthy Whisp
Context: If you need to tell your readers something … there are only two characters that you can put it convincingly into their dialogue. One is Hermione, the other is Dumbledore. In both cases you accept, it's plausible that they have, well Dumbledore knows pretty much everything anyway, but that Hermione has read it somewhere. So, she's handy.

„How horrible. Voldemort was nowhere near as bad.“
