When your a magical person and author, like J.K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame, sometimes it’s the small things that matter most as she tweeted out to a fan who is battling depression.

 Someone named Sally said on Twitter Monday that she was rereading the Potter books during “another bout of severe depression” to “strengthen my Patronus.” She thanked Rowling “for the magical escape that’s always there when it’s needed.”

Rowling saw the message, and replied with this magical response:

Those stories saved their author, too. Nothing makes me happier than to think that they went out into the world to do the same for other people. Keep that Patronus powerful.

Sally wasn’t the only one who praised Rowling either. A Tweeter named Sarah thanked J.K. for helping her through some very tough times and asked what books got Rowling through her struggles.

 “These stories saved their author, too,” wrote Rowling, who has often spoken about coping with depression while writing the fantasy novel series.

“When I’m really stressed or overwhelmed I turn to biographies of people who’ve led turbulent lives,” Rowling answered. “I find it soothing and inspiring to read about people who’ve endured and overcome.”
