I would like to spend the day with J.K. Rowling because she's the reason I learned to love reading and writing, and because she could teach me a lot of things. Joanne Rowling was born on July 31, 1965 in Yate, England. Even as a child Rowling would write small, short stories. "I would use these short stories to entertain my little sister," said Rowling in an interview for The Biography Channel. Rowling had moved around a lot in her childhood, througout elementary and high school years.
She had a nervous breakdown because of these tragedies and it filled her life with loneliness (Lombardi 1). After her husband passed, Mary found it hard to support herself and her son. Sir Timothy Shelley gave her as small sum of money, and made her publish her works anonymously. She wrote a few other books after her husband’s death, but they got negative criticism. These novels also contained tragedies that probably were taken from her own life.
In 1824, Charlotte and her older sisters, Maria and Elizabeth Bronte, enrolled in the Cowan Bridge Clergy Daughters’ School and obtained their education. Soon after Charlotte’s younger sister, Emily, joined them at the school, Maria and Elizabeth became very ill. Charlotte’s father, Patrick Bronte, requested for Maria and Elizabeth to be sent home to be taken care of. Charlotte and Emily were left to attend Cowan Bridge alone; however, this did not last long because they were soon requested home by their father as well. In the following year, Elizabeth and Maria both died of consumption. The death of these two beloved sisters took a toll on the Bronte family causing the remaining siblings to cling together for support and become best friends.
The romantic period is over. Yet the writers and characters who flourished in the period are still around in the homes and minds of many aspiring writers. Of course Charlotte Bronte and her peers are important to novels like Flowers and others like it. They are the blueprints for not only the way many authors write, but the way the readers expect the stories to unfold. They are the reason for the memory of the Romantic and gothic and their influence is the reason why so many choose to write the style.

There are a slim amount of writers who have the ability to capture the attention of an entire generation in the way that J.K. Rowling has. Rowling has been known as the writer to one of the bestselling series, the Harry Potter Books. Her style of writing has a way of casting a spell over her audience, sending them on a wild emotional ride throughout the entirety of the series. J.K Rowling is an amazing character herself and it is quite evident to see through her childhood, her early years, and leading up to her booming success in her career and charitable acts. Starting at the very beginning, J.K Rowling was born in Bristol, England at Chipping Sodbury General Hospital, where she was given her full name, Joanne Kathleen Rowling.
Charlotte’s mother was the daughter of a tea merchant and grocer. http://www.victorianweb.org/authors/bronte/cbronte/brontbio.html Charlotte was born into a family of five siblings- Maria (1813), Elizabeth (1815), Patrick Branwell (1817), Emily (1818), and Anne (1820). The following year after moving to Haworth, Mrs. Bronte died from cancer on September 15th. Now being the motherless, eldest child, it forced Charlotte to take on a position of leadership and some form of responsibility. However, as a way to cope with the loss of her mother, Charlotte created her own literary fictional worlds and imaginary kingdoms.
Her surroundings certainly influence her works, for she lived during the Transcendentalism and Romantic periods, not to mention the ghastly, but necessary Civil War. Transcendentalism and romanticism brought new ideas, literature, and ways of life and beliefs, and Alcott knew two great philosophers of that time, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. She lived with her parents and her three sisters in several places throughout Massachusetts. Alcott worked very hard for her family, and started writing about her childhood in stories. Her best-known novel is “Little Women” or “Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy”.
