At first, Carly absolutely refused to have anything to do with Harry Potter. After a day home sick, her Potterhead sister forced her to watch the first movie, and the rest was history. In 2009 after realizing her love of books, she decided to collect Harry Potter books seriously, starting with rare and signed books, then branching out into translations a few years later. In her Muggle life, she loves traveling, has traveled to over 35 countries, and lived in France and Spain. Carly has extensively studied language and linguistics, which has fueled her desire to collect translations.
