JK Rowling Makes It on Yahoo! Headlines

Wotcher Harry Potter fans!

I just went on Yahoo.com and found that J.K Rowling made it on the Yahoo! Headlines. 😀 It’s about time that something like this happened!

Unfortunately, this is not really about her working on the new book epic or the Deathly Hallows film, this is about her being one of the richest moms in the world. After all, she is richer than Queen Elizabeth. 🙂

Here is what they said:

Joanne (JK) Rowling, author of the Harry Potter book franchise, has told the story of her difficult days in Edinburgh, Scotland, where she had moved with her first child after a painful divorce to be near her sister. Rowling now has two more children with her current husband. The advance from the manuscript for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, which she wrote in cafes in Edinburgh, paid rent on the meager flat she shared with her first child while they were subsisting on welfare.

And later:

The World’s Richest Moms

There are 70 billionaire moms in the world, and only eight of those women–including Meg Whitman and J.K. Rowling–earned their own way to vast riches. But none of those self-starters are among the world’s 10 richest moms, a group that is dominated by widows and daughters of the very rich.

It’s amazing that only eight of the seventy richest moms out there earned their own “way to vast riches”.  Of course, Jo actually had to earn her own money, seeing she wrote 10 books.

You can click here to see the full story on Yahoo.com. I’m going to post the picture that Yahoo! posted on the headline.
