Having said, Harry Potter fans might still be shook at how this translates in comparison to a regular income. With most people earning a certain amount of money per hour, how do Joanna’s earnings compare to our own?
In the name of feeling terrible about our bank balance, Cosmopolitan have done some digging and worked out exactly what that gigantic sum means in terms of the author’s current day rate.
