Quite funnily, the idea for writing a story about a young wizard popped in her mind while she was on a train trip. She told The Boston Globe that “I really don’t know where the idea came from. It started with Harry, then all these characters and situations came flooding into my head.”(Source:wikipedia) Thank God for the idea!!
