This(Harry Potter) was a children’s book. A children’s book moreover that I’ve been told repeatedly wasn’t very commercial. Because I’ve been turned down a lot. So I went from utter obscurity. It was like being a Beattle that came a point when it’s crazy.
I came from a place where I was a single mother and it really was hand to mouth at one point. It was as literally as poor as you get in Britain without being homeless at one point. If you ever being there, you will never ever take for granted that you don’t need to worry.
What do you actually think money has done for you? What does it do? It frees you. That’s what it does, it frees you. That’s why it’s like a superpower.
你覺得錢給你什麼幫助? 金錢之於你是甚麼? 金錢給你自由。這就是它的功能，這也是為什麼金錢就像超能力一樣。
I was a writer. I had no one near me either professionally or personally who could in any way helped me when I had questions like: what do you do when the pres is searching your bins. That really crazy stuff.
I said I would need to be with someone who’s intelligent because I just value that. I said I would really like him to have his life in his own career. I thought these were really basic things. Integrity was very important and kindness and a very strong sense of who he was. These were things that I would really like.
