J.K Rowling – As Much Money and Life As You Could Want

J.K Rowling - As Much Money and Life As You Could Want

“As much money and life as you could want! The two things most human beings would choose above all – the trouble is, humans do have a knack of choosing precisely those things that are worst for them.”

– J.K Rowling

While J.K Rowling was writing Harry Potter, in a state that she described as being “poor as it is possible to be in modern Britain, without being homeless” and scribbling the adventures of teenage wizards in cafés while her baby daughter slept beside her, it is possible that a life of money were possible only in the fictional universe she was creating.

As a near-billionaire herself now, she seems to have an understanding that money is best spent on those who need it, and has donated around $160 million to charities which include children’s welfare groups, multiple sclerosis research, and other funds, as well as travel around the world to bring global attention to issues such as caged beds in mental institutions for children in Bucharest.
