Magic Beyond Words Shows the Reality of Living on Public Assistance

I just finished watching the film Magic Beyond Words: The J.K. Rowling Story.  I admit it…I’m a Potter fan.  I have always wondered about the process that Rowling went through while writing the books.  I watched the film with the understanding that it was a Lifetime dramatization of her life.  I’m sure it was based … Continue reading
