Her life will get ruined by “social justice warriors,” and she or he will get doxxed and finally murdered.
That is the obvious self-insert character since Michael Scarn, FBI. This lady used to have the ability to create worlds, if nothing else. JFC.
In fact, on this planet J.Ok. has created, her avatar’s persecutors had been truly being spurred on by a shadowy determine who has an ulterior motive for siccing the woke mob on her. OK, we guess that’s nonetheless fairly imaginative! LOLz!

In spite of everything, Galbraith is such a typical title, may have occurred to anybody.
For what it’s value, she claims the pen title was impressed by her “hero” Robert Kennedy and Galbraith got here from… nicely, she doesn’t have a superb cause for that one.
“Galbraith came about for a slightly odd reason. When I was a child, I really wanted to be called ‘Ella Galbraith’, and I’ve no idea why. I don’t even know how I knew that the surname existed, because I can’t remember ever meeting anyone with it.”
Such a wild coincidence! Identical to how comparable Harry Potter’s description is to Tim Hunter in Neil Gaiman‘s The Books of Magic. Simply so many coincidences surrounding this lady, huh?
