Connections to a Billionaire

Last week we had a few people from Scotland over for face-to-face meetings here at work. And of course, Harry Potter (and JK Rowling) had to come up.

Turns out the one guy lives two blocks from JK Rowling in Edinburgh.
And the other guy's mother who is a teacher taught JK Rowling's daughter for years.

So if you lived two blocks from JK Rowling, would you go out of your way to walk by her house?
Would you hope mail got delivered to the wrong address so you'd have an excuse to ring her doorbell?
Would you bake "all the neighbors" cookies and hand deliver them?
Would you get your kid to try to sell her girlscout cookies?

Would you drop your ARC on her doorstep?

Just hoping to have an ARC to drop on anyone's doorstep. :-)

Maybe not for JK Rowling, but I might stroll by Stephen King's house. I hear he has a wrought iron fence with bats on it.

After watching the television interview that MV did with JKRowling, yes, I would go out of my way to meet her. Something tells me, though, she wouldn't be hard to find - unless writing. I wouldn't want to interrupt the writing rhythm.
