Personal Quote:

[Discussing her daughter, Jessica]: Kids at her school will sidle up to me and say, "Does Jessica know what happens in book 4? Does Jessica know the title of book 4?" And I keep saying, "No! There is no point kidnapping her, taking her around back of the bike shed, and torturing her for information." See more »

Trivia:

On 3 April 2003, she and Time Warner successfully sued Dutch publishing company Byblos in the Amsterdam High Court. This prevented Byblos from publishing Russian author Dmitry Yemets' novel "The Magic Double Bass", which features girl wizard "Tanya Grotter". It was deemed to plagiarize Rowling's novel "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" and to infringe upon her copyright. See more »
