"The fan asked Rowling to explain the truth about this "birthplace" of Harry Potter".
Back in 1997, only 500 hardback first editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone were printed and majority were sent to schools and libraries.
"I was thinking of putting a section on my website about all of Potter's alleged inspirations and birthplaces", he wrote on Twitter.
"If you define Harry Potter's birthplace as a moment of early thought for me, it's the Manchester-London train", Rowling tweeted. "The first bricks of Hogwarts were laid in a flat in Clapham Junction", she confirmed.
But now, Rowling has revealed Edinburgh is actually not where the writing of the boy who lived began. However I am perennially amused by the concept Hogwarts was immediately impressed by stunning locations I noticed or visited, as a result of it is so removed from the reality.
She also went on to reveal that the high-flying game of Quidditch most famously seen in the Harry Potter series was born after she stayed for a night at the Bourneville Hotel in Manchester.
It is not an exaggeration to say that the seven-book series swept up a generation of children, and more after that, with its depiction of orphaned Harry Potter, who discovers not only that he is a wizard, but that his destiny is connected to the villainous Lord Voldemort.

".As ever in a crisis of this sort, the poorest and most vulnerable are hit hardest, so in honour of the Battle of Hogwarts, I'll be making a donation of £1m..."
"I sometimes hear Hogwarts was based on one or other of Edinburgh's schools, but that's 100% false, too", Rowling said.
"Hogwarts was created long before I could slap any of them! I finished the Hallows at Balmoral, and I can't lie, I would rate it a little higher than Bournville".
"My favourite bit of utter nonsense about Potter landmarks is still this one".
