because family is funny
Somewhere in Edinburgh, Jo Rowling might be smiling over this.
Ironically, there is some truth to his thoughts. from wikipedia: Fearing that the target audience of young boys might not want to read a book written by a woman, her publishers demanded that she use two initials, rather than her full name. I guess she could have used her real name and followed it up with *but has had a ton of boyfriends.
Bob is such a wise soul. Certain to be a publisher someday.
Well obviously. ;) lol
I really, really wish she would do a prequel to the series focused on Harry's mother. I think girls need a strong role model, and I'm sure she would do a great job of providing one.
I, too, remember reading that the publishers thought the book wouldn't sell if it was seen that it was written by a woman.
