JK Rowling is Up to No Good... for a Good Reason

Today, we are happy to report that J.K. Rowling has been up to no good....for a good reason. The Harry Potter author paid a visit to a hospital in Edinburgh, Scotland, where she brought cheer in the form of unique graffiti on the walls of the unit. The Scotsman writes: "Ms Rowling, 43, daubed graffiti on the walls of the Young People's Unit at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital in Morningside, which cares for teenagers with complex psychiatric conditions.

Consultant psychologist Dr Jane Morris said: "She really does spread magic. She's a natural and knows how to talk to young people. And she's extremely cool. She does graffiti on the walls which is probably worth a fortune.

"She's drawn all of us and wrote 'JK Rowling was here'.
...
And her way with the capital's troubled teens impressed staff.

Dr Morris said: "I'd offer her a job any time as she's already a great therapist."

We at TLC think that Peeves certainly would approve!

yay Jo! i love when celebrities help people, instead of using their fame for selfish reasons.

PS: Hey, Jo, can you come over to Canada and graffiti my bedroom wall for me? haha.

That’s amazing! I’m glad doing something bad is technically good in some situations. :)

How the hell does she get away with all this criminal activity…she vandalised a valuable statues in her hotel room, draws graffiti all over the place, I would be locked up if I did that…just how ultra cool is she!

mugglemom4, love your post. I do see the similarities too. Princess Di had a magic touch with everyone…well except Charles and Camilla…and Jo seems to have that same aura about her making people’s heart glow.

That is so cool, I bet she would make a great therapist. From what we’ve seen she seems like a natural people person, especially where youth are concerned.
