The Author of the Harry Potter book series is J.K.Rowling
 
 
Born in Chepstow, Gwent in 1965, J.K. Rowling's favorite subjects in school were English and languages. J.K. went to Exeter University, worked as a secretary and as a teacher, but then fell on hard times. She and her husband divorced shortly after the birth of their daughter and J.K. Rowling ended up unemployed and living in a tiny flat in Edinburgh with her only child. Of course, maybe it wasn't all bad because it was during this time that she wrote Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone. The idea for the book came to J.K. Rowling while on a train ride.
 
The Scottish Arts Council gave her a grant to finish the first book.
J.K. Rowling named Harry Potter after a childhood friend, Ian Potter.
She writes all of her books by hand. Ouch! She must have been pretty tired by the end of Order of the Phoenix.
When asked what mommies do, J.K. Rowling's daughter once replied, "Mommies write!"
 
 "I am an extraordinarily lucky person, doing what I love best in the world. I'm sure that I will always be a writer. It was wonderful enough just to be published. The greatest reward is the enthusiasm of the readers." - J.K. Rowling
