Interesting Facts about Jessica’s Mother

She loved reading from a young age, and was particularly fascinated with fantasy books that her parents used to read to her. At the age of six, she started composing her own stories and her first story was called “Rabbit” which her mother praised, and Rowling thought of getting it published.
However, seven years after Jessica’s birth, she thought of herself as a failure, because she had just moved from a failed marriage and was jobless with a young child. It was at such a trying time that she was diagnosed with clinical depression, and even thought of committing suicide.
She named one of her book characters after a terminally ill reader: Natalie McDonald was a Harry Potter novels fan who got diagnosed with leukemia. Her mother’s friend wrote to Rowling requesting her to write to Natalie as she was terminally ill. When Rowling got the mail, she decided to send the ending of her novel “The Goblet of Fire” even before it was published, but unfortunately Natalie passed away before she could read the letter. It is then that Rowling decided to name one of the characters Natalie in honor of her avid reader who had succumbed.
