With the money she makes, she can afford a pretty big manor.

Rowling is an interesting case. I never tried reading the Potter books at first, but after watching the first few movies decided to give them a try-- and quickly gave up after browsing through a few (illegal downloads.) The interesting case? She creates interesting stories with interesting characters and interesting settings-- but with utterly pedestrian writing. The prose and dialogue just lies there on the page, dead. I couldn't force myself to read the whole books. So as a writer, I think Rowling makes some pretty good movies.

(It isn't just Rowling-- after watching and enjoying the series True Blood I took a look at the books it was based on. Yikes, what underwhelming writing!)
