Most people know her and for the same reason that like her books. It is because of harry potter.

Harry Potter series and The Casual Vacancy are enough proofs to her writing capability

Harry Potter changed my life! It will never grow old.

Harry Potter has changed millions of lives, it introduced me to an obsession that has overtaken my life, and I'm not ashamed to say that. We laughed and cried with them, we waited for our hogwarts letter, ran into the wall at every train station we've been on. And it inspired me to be a kinder more understanding person. If you haven't read Harry Potter yet, try it, it could change your life, just as it had mine. Harry Potter is, and shall remain my childhood... Always
