  1. Interesting. No one said we had to have a middle name, or how many names we are to have - tradition I suppose.

  3. I have a middle name but I'm not too crazy about it, so you won't see it on a book cover!

  4. Good one Adam!
    J K Rowling certainly has a most interesting background and a remarkable
    writing talent.
    Her life is a "rags to riches" story - now worth due to her writings of these Harry Potter books over 560 million pounds (UK) !!!
    Success hasn't gone to her head either. She is involved in many philanthropic works and charity organisations.
    A really remarkable person who has brought much enjoyment to the youngsters of this world. I must confess I have not seen any of these Harry Potter movies!

  6. Never knew that. Didn't know anyone could not have a middle name either, seems like it is the norm

  7. She gives me the inspiration to carry on with writing. Maybe, hopefully, they'll make a movie out of "Shag Carpet Toilet."
    Nawwwwwww.....doubt it.
