Good for them!

The founders of the two leading Harry Potter fan sites received an amazing call from JKRowling recently according to the Times.
Emerson Spartz, an 18-year-old student from Indiana, was asleep at 9am when his telephone rang.

A Scottish voice asked “Hello, Emerson? This is Jo. You believe me, don’t you?” Rowling, who has become increasingly reclusive, handpicked Mr Spartz and Melissa Anelli, a 24-year-old reporter from a local New York City newspaper, to be the only people to interview her individually for the publication of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, because of her admiration for their fan websites.

Mr Spartz runs Mugglenet, a website named after Rowling’s term for non-magical people, and Ms Anelli is the editorial director of The Leaky Cauldron, another highly-regarded source of Harry Potter gossip.
