To Whom It May Concern,
I am a writer because of JK Rowling.
JK Rowling sparked my love of magic, myth, and mystery. After reading the Harry Potter books, I breathed in YA books like it was air.
If you’ve been out and about over the last few days you may have seen countless people walking around, stopping suddenly, eyes attached to their phones, swiping wildly across the screens then shouting in joy, fist pumping, and moving on. You may have even heard the words “Pokéball”, “Pidgey” and “Evolve.” This is all because Pokémon Go was released last week and taking the world by storm.
