The life of this amazing woman is like a fairy tale. J.K. Rowling and Neil Murray made each other happy and proved that magic has a place in life when people want to believe in it. However, in that year, the stars formed in her favor: that was the year of the film adaptation of her first book "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" and the year of the only coveted meeting.
Joan, as far back as she can remember, has always dreamed. She dreamed of unexplored countries and exciting fairy-tale forests. She even composed her fairy tales as a baby, so that later she could tell them to her little sister. But its reality was far from invented. Mom was seriously ill, had a very difficult relationship with my father, I had to endure the ridicule of classmates. She could only take refuge in her imaginary world.
After leaving school, she entered the Faculty of French, although she dreamed of English literature. But her parents considered her choice too frivolous. Joana dutifully agreed to study French. She seemed to be on the wrong path again. After receiving her education, the girl moved to London, worked in different places as a secretary, but she herself admits that the secretary turned out to be not very good from her. But she had a fictional friend.
Once on the train, the image of a funny boy in round glasses stood in front of her with all reality. He could do everything that she herself dreamed of. Joana began to write about a boy with glasses. He was strong and smart, her new friend, fearless and dexterous. He could overcome any obstacles and defeat all enemies. The thin manuscript grew, its Harry Potter acquired more and more new features.
But the news of her mother's death shocked her too much. The inability to return to her home due to the finally deteriorated relationship with her father influenced the fact that Joana found a job as an English teacher in Portugal.
Escape from the nightmare
The young English teacher worked in the evenings and wrote about her magician during the day, including Tchaikovsky's music. Sometimes she went out with a friend to some local bar. There she met the student Jorge Arantes. He was as handsome as a Greek god, ardent and passionate. The novel developed very rapidly, somewhat similar to the Mexican TV series. There was passion, jealousy, mutual resentment and stormy reconciliation in him. Joana got pregnant and dreamed of a boy whom Harry would definitely name. Her dream did not come true, she lost her child. Jorge was very worried about his beloved and offered her a hand and a heart.
However, nothing good came of this marriage. The jealous and ardent young man began to raise his hand to his young wife. Even the birth of baby Jessica did not make him change his attitude. After another scandal, he put her out on the street. Joana had to return with the police to pick up her daughter and leave this nightmare forever.
The main thing is not to give up
She returned to London and again found herself alone with problems. Alone, with tiny Jessica in her arms. But she had a dream. About the same Harry Potter with whom she passionately wanted to introduce the whole world. She wrote wherever there was such an opportunity. But most of all she loved the small cafe, which was kept by her sister's husband. She settled herself at the window, rocked her baby and plunged into a fairy-tale world. She was not afraid of the approaching poverty, she believed in herself.
When the "Philosopher's Stone" was published, the girl was just happy.Let the circulation was absolutely scanty, but a start was made. Success came with the first book. She wrote, and her books were already waiting, unprecedented queues lined up behind them. Joana became rich and famous.
Her Harry Potter
In 2001, Joana meets a modest anesthesiologist at a charity party. He was the living embodiment of her Harry Potter. The same funny bangs, a thoughtful look, an embarrassed smile. Neil Murray at this time was just finishing the divorce procedure from his first wife.
They seem to have been created for each other, a real sorceress and an aspiring wizard. They carefully guarded their nascent love from prying eyes. In just a few weeks, J.K. Rowling and Neil Murray became husband and wife. They were happy. The girl, who always dreamed of quiet comfort, calm family life, has finally found ground under her feet.
It's hard to be a star
At first, the newlyweds had a hard time. Journalists and photographers chased them constantly. The humble Neal even had to flee from his hospital, because reporters tried to get close to him under the guise of colleagues. He did not want to give any interviews, and Joana did not at all strive for publicity.
She began to travel a lot around the world, either participating in the presentation of a new book about Harry Potter, then appearing at the premiere of the film. It was hard for the spouses to spend a lot of time apart. Neil decided to spend more time with his family, quit the hospital, and began to accompany his wife everywhere.
Joana, wounded by her first marriage, for a long time could not believe that now everything is different in her life. Her beloved is gentle and caring, he does not suffer from bouts of jealousy, he loves and appreciates her. For him, Joana is a whole world, mysterious, mysterious, but so beautiful. Let her sometimes withdraw into herself. For Joana herself, her beloved Neil is the best husband in the world. He is educated, intelligent and in love. She sometimes does not believe that she invented her own happiness herself. And here it is, alive, real, next to her. In 2003, a son, David, was born to the family of Joan and Neil, and in 2005, a daughter, Mackenzie.
Now the famous writer tirelessly talks about her immense happiness. She loves and is loved, she has a wonderful loving husband and three dearest children. She no longer needs to worry about money. She donates a lot to charity, remembering those difficult times when she was on the verge of despair.
J.K. Rowling and Neil Murray still dislike publicity, trying to keep their little island of happiness intact. They managed to make their dreams come true because they always believed in miracles. After all, fairy tales appear only where they are ready to be heard.

Most of the world has been calculating time for four centuries using a calendar called the Gregorian. The year of this calendar is divided into 12 months and lasts 365 days. One additional day is added every four years. Such a year is called a leap year. This is necessary in order to remove the difference between the movement of the sun and the calendar. This concept was introduced in the late 16th century by Pope Gregory XIII as a reform of the Julian calendar. The Gregorian calendar is generally accepted because
