* GenreShift: Subverted. It would ''seem'' that going from magical BoardingSchool books aimed primarily at younger readers to CrimeFiction novels for adults is a big leap. However, considering Rowling's escalating DarkerAndEdgier tone and her love of [[RedHerring Red Herrings]], TheSummation, and all things [[ThisIndexWillBeImportantLater Chekhov]], it was a very organic, almost inevitable transition. ''Literature/TheCasualVacancy'', with its [[SequelDifficultyDrop much lower stakes]] and RotatingProtagonist, is a much straighter example, and is something of an [[OddballInTheSeries Oddball]] in her oeuvre.

* FormerTeenRebel: As a teenager, Rowling had a penchant for leather jackets and heavy eyeshadow, even with her school uniform, and put up a tough girl exterior to deal with school bullies and her mothers declining health at home.

* {{Homage}}: Writing under her post-Potter synonym as "Robert Galbraith", she revealed in a Creator/{{BBC}} interview in November 2015 that she is a fan of the Music/BlueOysterCult. "Robert Galbraith"'s novel ''Career Of Evil'' is heavily inspired by a BOC song of the same title and she admitted to loading the book with a lot of [[ShoutOut ShoutOuts]] to other lyrics and songs by this band.

* TakeThat: Gave a playful one to Creator/StephenFry. When Fry was recording the audiobook for ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'', he had trouble pronouncing the phrase "Harry pocketed it." Finally he phoned Rowling to ask if she could revise the book to say "Harry put it in his pocket." Rowling considered a moment and replied "[[BluntYes No]]" and then included the phrase "Harry pocketed it" word for word ''in each of the next four books of the series''.
