Joanne Rowling was born just outside Bristol and grew up in Gloucestershire in England and in Chepstow, Gwent, in south-east Wales. The young Jo grew up surrounded by books. “I lived for books,’’ she has said. Jo wanted to be a writer from an early age. She wrote her first book at the age of six. At just eleven, she wrote her first novel – about seven cursed diamonds and the people who owned them.

Jo conceived the idea of Harry Potter in 1990. Over the next five years, she began to map out all seven books of the series. Her first novel was published in the US under a different title, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, in 1998. Six further titles followed in the Harry Potter series, each achieving record-breaking success.

In 2001, the film adaptation of the first book was released by Warner Bros., and was followed by six more book adaptations, concluding with the release of the eighth film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, in 2011. J.K. Rowling has also written two small volumes, which appear as the titles of Harry’s school books within the novels. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Quidditch Through The Ages were published in March 2001 in aid of Comic Relief. In December 2008, The Tales of Beedle the Bard was published in aid of her international children’s charity, Lumos. In the same year, J.K. Rowling published her first novel for adults, The Casual Vacancy.

Under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, J.K. Rowling also writes crime novels, featuring private detective Cormoran Strike.

J.K. Rowling has been married to Dr Neil Murray since 2001. They live in Edinburgh with their son, David (born 2003) and daughter, Mackenzie (born 2005).
