J. K. Rowling reaches out to one of her Twitter followers in trouble.

Despite being one of the most famous authors in the world, J.K. Rowling is known for spending time responding to her Twitter followers questions and comments.

Her latest move though was to take the time to reach out to a fan expressing her deep concern about ‘feeling sad all the time’ and asking the incredible Harry Potter scribe for help.

On Monday night Australian time, the young woman wrote “could you please tech me how to scare the dementors that have been living under my bed? I’m tired of being sad all the time.
