J.K. Rowling Biography on Lifetime

Magic Beyond Words: The J.K. Rowling Story dramatizes Joanne Rowling's life from her childhood until the beginning of her success.  J.K. Rowling, author of the mega best-selling Harry Potter series, is one of the richest, most famous women in the world. It is difficult to believe the downward spiral her life had been on before she sold "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone". It is a rags to riches story for the ages.

Rowling is first seen as a highly imaginative child, making up stories for her friends, sister and herself to act out. Many of these were about witches. She was very smart and always wanted to be a writer. Rowling attended a private school with uniforms with a very nice headmaster.
