About the Author J K Rowling:

Joanne Rowling was born in South Gloucestershire, England on 31 July 1965, found on the outskirts of Bristol. There is some confusion as to precisely where; Rowling has mentioned she was born in Chipping Sodbury, whereas her birth certificate apparently claims she was born in the Cottage Hospital at Yate. Her sister Di was born when Rowling was virtually 2 . The family moved to Winterbourne, Bristol when Rowling was 4, and then to Tutshill, near Chepstow, Wales at the age of 9. She attended secondary school at Wyedean School and College. In December 1990, Rowling's mom succumbed to a decade-long battle with numerous sclerosis.

After studying French and Classics at the University of Exeter, with a year of research in Paris, she moved to London to function as a researcher and bilingual secretary for Amnesty International. During this period she had the idea for a story of the young boy attending a school of wizardry while she was on a four-hour, delayed train trip between Manchester and London. When she had reached her destination, she started composing instantly .

Rowling then moved to Portugal to teach English as a foreign code. While there, she married Portuguese tv journalist Jorge Arantes on 16 October 1992. They had 1 child, Jessica Isabel, before divorcing in 1993. Their daughter was called after Rowling's heroine, Jessica Mitford.

In December, 1994, she and her daughter moved to be near her sister in Edinburgh. Unemployed and living on state advantages, she completed her initial novel, doing a few of the function in localized Edinburgh cafes whenever she can receive Jessica to fall sleeping. There was a rumour that she wrote in neighborhood cafés in purchase to escape from her unheated flat, but in a 2001 BBC interview Rowling remarked, "I am not stupid enough to rent an unheated flat, in Edinburgh, in mid-winter; it had heating"

In 1995, Rowling completed her manuscript for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone on an aged manual typewriter. Upon the enthusiastic reaction of Bryony Evans, a young reader who had been asked to review the book's initial 3 chapters, the Fulham-based Christopher Little Literary Agents agreed to represent Rowling in her quest for a publisher. The book was handed to twelve publishing houses, all of which refused it. . A year later she was finally provided the greenlight (along with a £1500 advance) by the editor Barry Cunningham within the little publisher Bloomsbury. Although Cunningham happily agreed to publish the book, he claims he advised her to receive a day job, as she had small chance of creating cash in children's books. She then received an £8000 grant within the Scottish Arts Council to help her to continue composing. The following spring, an auction was held in the United States for the rights to publish the novel, and was won by Scholastic Inc, who paid Rowling over 0,000. Rowling has mentioned she "almost died" when she heard the news. In June, 1997, Bloomsbury published Philosopher's Stone with an intial print run of just 1000 duplicates, 500 of which were distributed to libraries. Today, such duplicates are valued at between £16,000 and £25,000 each.  Five months later it won its initial honor, a Nestle Smarties Book Prize. In February, the novel won the prestigious British Book Award for Children's Book of the Year, and, later the Children's Book Award. In October 1998, Scholastic published Philosopher's Stone in the States under the title of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, a change Rowling today claims she regrets and would have fought if she had been in a greater position at the time. .

In December 1999, the 3rd Harry Potter novel, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,won the Smarties Prize, in the task creating Rowling the initial individual to win the honor 3 instances running. She later withdrew the 4th Harry Potter novel from contention to enable different books a fair chance. In January, 2000, Prisoner of Azkaban won the inaugural Whitbread Children's Book of the Year honor, though it narrowly lost the Book of the Year prize to Seamus Heaney's translation of Beowulf. That June, the Queen honored Rowling by creating her an Officer of the Order of the British Empire.

Rowling has reported that she plans to continue composing after the publication of the final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, In an interview with Stephen Fry in 2005, Rowling said that she would much choose to write any next books under a pseudonym; though she conceded to Jeremy Paxman in 2003 that if she did, the hit would "find out in seconds." In 2006, Rowling revealed that she had completed composing a limited brief stories and another children's book (a "political fairy story") about a monster, aimed at a young audience than Harry Potter visitors.

She is not planning to write an eighth Harry Potter book, and has reported, "I can't state I'll not write another book about that globe simply because I think, what do I recognize, in ten years' time I would wish To return with it but I think it's unlikely." But, Rowling has mentioned she is composing an encyclopaedia of Harry Potter's wizarding globe consisting of many unpublished information and notes. Any income from such a book will be provided to charity. During a news meeting at Hollywood's Kodak Theatre in 2007, Rowling, when asked how the encyclopaedia was coming along, mentioned, "It's not coming along, and I haven't started composing it. I not mentioned it was the upcoming thing I'd do." As of the finish of 2007, Rowling has mentioned that the encyclopaedia can take as much as ten years to complete, stating "There is not any point in doing it unless it is very amazing. The last thing I like to do is to rush ­something out".

In July 2007, Rowling mentioned that she wants to commit "lots" of her time to her family, but is currently "sort of composing 2 things", 1 for youngsters and the different for adults. She didn't provide any details about the 2 projects but did state that she was excited because the 2 book condition reminded her of composing the Philosopher's Stone, explaining how she was then composing 2 books until Harry took over. She reported in October 2007 that her future function was unlikely to be in the fantasy genre, explaining, "I think possibly I've completed my fantasy....it will be incredibly difficult to go out and create another globe that didn't in some method overlap with Harry's or borrow a small too much from Harry." In November 2007, Rowling mentioned that she was functioning on another book, a "half-finished book for kids that I think will be the upcoming thing I publish." In March 2008, Rowling confirmed that her "political fairy tale" for youngsters was nearing completion.

In March 2008, Rowling revealed in interview that she had returned to composing in Edinburgh cafés, aim on composing a new novel for youngsters. "I might continue composing for youngsters because that's what I enjoy," she told The Daily Telegraph. "I am great at acquiring a right café; I blend into the crowd and, naturally, I don't sit in the center of the bar staring all around me."
