J.K. Rowling's personal rags-to-riches story is as magical as anything she has conjured up in her "Harry Potter" series: Once upon a time, she was a divorced mom on public assistance who dreamed of being a published writer; now she's known worldwide as the creator of wizard Harry and his fantastic tales. Her first of four published books (in a planned series of seven) has been made into a movie, which just opened, and a movie based on Book 2 is in the works.
