Joanne Kathleen Rowling, writer, b.July 31st 1965

J. K. Rowling is the author of the internationally famous series of children's fantasy stories concerning the exploits of the boy wizard Harry Potter.

The Harry Potter books:

Harry Potter-related books:

  • Quidditch Through the Ages
  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

(These two are facsimiles of schoolbooks Harry and his friends use, and all proceedings from them go to charity.)

A film of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (titled Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone elsewhere in the world), directed by Chris Columbus, was released in late 2001.

Rowling was sued by Nancy K. Stouffer, author of "Rah and the Muggles", featuring Larry Potter, alleging trademark and copyright infringement. The case has not yet made it to court (December 2001).
