About the Author

J. K. (Joanne Kathleen) Rowling, July 31, 1965 J. K. Rowling was born at Chipping Sodbury General Hospital in Gloucestershire, U. K. on July 31, 1965 to Anne and Peter Rowling. Two years later, her sister Dianne was born. Rowling attended Tutshill Primary and then went on to Wyedean Comprehensive where she was made Head Girl in her final year. Her University years she spent at Exeter University, where she received a degree in French. She later took some teaching classes at Moray House Teacher Training College and a teacher-training course in Manchester, England. This extensive education created a perfect foundation to spark the Harry Potter series that Rowling is renowned for. After college, Rowling moved to London to work for Amnesty International, where she researched human rights abuses in Francophone Africa, and worked as a bilingual secretary. In 1992, Rowling quit office work to move to Portugal and teach English as a Second Language. There she met and married her husband, a Portuguese TV journalist. But the marriage dissolved soon after the birth of their daughter, Jessica. It was after her stint teaching in Portugal that Rowling began to write the premise for Harry Potter. She returned to Britain and settled in Edinburgh to be near her sister Di, and attempted to at least finish her book, before looking for another teaching job. Rowling was in fact working as a French teacher in June of 1997 when she heard the news that her book would soon be published by London agent

From Our Editors

Harry Potter is a young sleuth who attends the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with his friends Ron and Hermione. Nothing spectacular ever happens - they cast a few spells, mix a potion now and then and zip around on their brooms playing Quidditch. But their calm routine is shattered when Harry hears mysterious voices and foreboding messages appear on the school walls. You just know that these spectral occurrences mean that Harry and his friends are in for yet another wild adventure. J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets maintains the imaginative standards of other books about this engaging young investigator.

Appropriate for ages: 9 - 12
