In brief – I was a matron of honor at my sister’s wedding and then, after I returned to New York, I met J.K. Rowling.
You want proof?
Fuzzy lady with brown hair on the left is me. Fuzzy lady with the blond hair on the right is Ms. Rowling. And so you may have to forgive my inability to make coherent words for a day or so. I be floored. A million thanks to Dan Blank for the opportunity and the photo itself!
