Few writers exemplify the rags to riches story as much as JK Rowling. The Harry Potter writer was born in a small Gloucestershire town in 1965 and spent most of her early life pursuing creativity. An immensely creative child, she wrote fantasy stories and incredible tales, reading them to her sister in a search for critical feedback.
Her school years were spent absorbed in books, with Rowling building a mental encyclopedia of knowledge and literary skills. She has since remarked that the Harry Potter character, despite his male gender, is loosely based on herself, with his book smarts and somewhat bumbling character based on her own experiences as a teenager.
