LONDON- J.K Rowling has covered many steps to fame and now she is a renowned and acclaimed writer. She is 50 now and she seems to have gone through a lot to reach this stage. So, it will be interesting to know what she was doing when she was the half the age she is now,
Rowling was 25 years old when she came up with the idea for Harry Potter during a delayed four-hour train ride in 1990.
She started writing the first book that evening, but it took her years to actually finish it. While working as a secretary for the London office of Amnesty International, Rowling was fired for daydreaming too much about Harry Potter, and her severance check would help her focus on writing for the next few years.
During these years, she got married, had a daughter, got divorced, and was diagnosed with clinical depression before finally finishing the book in 1995. It was published in 1997.
