Posted Friday January 31, 2014 12:05 PM GMT

She’s usually pretty content to lay low and work on bestselling books, but JK Rowling isn’t one to let injustice go unpunished.

The “Harry Potter” author is launching a lawsuit against the Daily Mail, who she says defamed her with an incendiary article.

According to reports, Rowling took issue with the Mail’s story titled, "How J.K. Rowling's sob story about her past as a single mother has left the churchgoers who cared for her upset and bewildered,” and now she’s going to make them pay.

J.K. fells that she was portrayed as accusing "her fellow churchgoers of behaving in a bigoted, unchristian manner towards her, of stigmatizing her and cruelly taunting her for being a single mother."

Futhermore, Rowling insists that the Daily Mail overemphasized her reference "to a single occasion involving a woman who had visited the church one day whilst she was working there."
