J.K. Rowling herself put up a scavenger hunt on the internet a few days ago (which I participated in!) and it revealed the word “Pottermore” and a new website. And the craziness began. WHAT IS IT? Everyone wants to know and there’s a YouTube video covered in owls where in 5 days and counting, she’ll tell us. All we know is it’s not a book. Theories include an online Role Playing Game, a store, an interactive encyclopedia, etc. The owls lead me to believe that they will be delivering letters to Hogwarts in an online game of sorts. On J.K. Rowling’s website years ago she did a sort of game/test where you could unlock awards by taking extreme trivia challenges. I think she was testing how people would respond to something like that. So that’s my theory – a game where you get to go to Hogwarts. What do you think it is?

I love to read YA fantasy fiction and classic literature. I also like to write and what better to write about than my life? Because looking back makes me realize how funny my life was. Painful at the time, but hilariously funny now. I'm also a stay at home my with two young boys. My house is not as clean as it could be, but I don't really care. Books are an escape for a reason.
