Happy New Year!
Today I am participating in First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, which is all about “sharing the first paragraph or two of a book that I’m reading or plan to read soon.” FCFPTI is hosted by I’d Rather Be at the Beach and takes place every Tuesday. I’m currently reading In Praise of Difficult Women: Life Lessons From 29 Heroines Who Dared to Break the Rules by Karen Karbo.
Chapter 1: J. K. Rowling: Feisty
Given her monumental literary success, happy marriage to a loving Scottish doctor, three beautiful children, posh residences scattered around the UK, blond English rose beauty, and ability to rock dangly earrings, there is no reason on Earth for J. K. Rowling to be difficult. And yet she is. Tetchy on Twitter, out and proud about her progressive politics, Jo (as she calls herself) isn’t interested in remaining imprisoned by her role as creator of one of the most beloved fictional universes in literary history. Instead, she stays in the fray, enjoys stirring things up.
