J.K. RowlingSo I thought I would ride the Harry Potter bandwagon and dig a little into who Joanne Kathleen Rowling is all about? Well I should have known the in true YummyChick style Joanne is a fighter who has come from humble beginnings. There was a time when Joanne was struggling to make ends meet as a divorcee, single mum teaching english in portugal.  She was broke and used to spend her time writing in coffee shops while her baby slept. She persevered even after her first book Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone was rejected several times. ..But this yummy chick persevered and the rest as you know is history… Now she is the biggest publishing success in the world and is second only to the bible is sales…Looove it
