JK Rowling, OBE

NOVELIST

JK Rowling needs no introduction. Harry Potter has become a worldwide fantasy phenomenon, selling more than 400 million copies worldwide, being translated into 72 languages, and forming the foundation for the highest-grossing film series in history. The idea for the series was born on a delayed train from Manchester to London. In the seven years that followed, Rowling lost her mother, saw her marriage end and had little money to live off. Despite these setbacks Rowling persevered, crafting some of the most celebrated works of the century. Rowling has subsequently published novels for adults such as The Casual Vacancy and The Cuckoo’s Calling. Her words have made her one of the most influential women in Britain.
