But JKR's been very transparent about where her money comes from - when she was living on social security and writing the early books, for instance. Nowadays, of course, she's one of the few authors who actually can live off her work without needing a job or partner's income...

Ah, so the benefits thing is true but the context is that she chose it. I'm still glad she had the option (specially since even for couples, the UK economy generally means either one person stays home with the kid, or they work and watch all their earnings get eaten up by childcare cosst anyway), but it indeed makes it not quite the rags to riches tale we're often presented with!
