J.K. Rowling

Joanne K. Rowling -- better known by her initials J.K. -- became an international literary sensation in 1999 when the first three books in the Harry Potter series topped The New York Times bestseller list.

Since then, the former schoolteacher has completed the seven-part series about the adventures of a boy sent to a school of wizardry. The series includes Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban, and Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince and Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows.




No book in history has had a larger first printing than Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire -- 3.8 million copies were published in the United States alone. More than 400 million Harry Potter books have sold worldwide, and Warner Bros. has also produced several of the books as movies. Rowling's success propelled her to the 9th spot on Forbes' 2008 list of the most powerful celebrities.

Rowling has won numerous awards, including the 1999 American Booksellers Book Award. She lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, with her daughter.
