To all the writers out there (and those who aspire to be writers)......

Did you know that J. K. Rowling received a grant?  Who is that?  Well that's the woman who wrote (and still continues to write) the Harry Potter books!  It has been estimated that this author has made more money than the Queen of England!

In the 90's, Rowlands received a $13,000 grant that allowed her to quit her job and concentrate on writing her (second) book.  In the meantime her first book received over $100,000 for the US Rights and from there she hasn't looked back!
