Replying to @jk_rowling As a mother and a fan I am very disappointed. As an author, I’m proud that one of the central characters in my novel is trans and SHE is too cool to care about what you think.

They say it’s about talent and handwork but it’s IMPOSSIBLE to break into this industry unless you have CONNECTIONS. Thinking about giving up.
