Fans Of J.K. Rowling
Hello, This is a group made for none other then Miss J.K.Rowlings.
Joanne K. Rowling (pronounced rolling) is the author of the Harry Potter series of books, which began with the 1997 tale Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. (U.S. title: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.) The book told the story of Harry Potter, a seemingly ordinary boy who discovered that he was actually a wizard. The book was a sensational hit, and by the end of 1999 the top three slots on the New York Times list of bestsellers were taken by the first three books in the Harry Potter series. By the 2000 release of the fourth book in the series, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter had become a global pop culture phenomenon, with parents and children standing in line at bookstores waiting for the book's release. Rowling herself had become one of the world's best-known and best-paid authors. After the 2003 release of the fifth Harry Potter book, The Order of the Phoenix, the BBC reported that Rowling's books had been translated into 60 languages (including ancient Greek) and had sold over 250 million copies worldwide. The sequels to the original book are: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (1999), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (1999), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2000), Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2003), Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2005), and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (2007). Rowling has stated that the seventh book is the last in the series.
Extra credit: The films Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001), Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) starred Daniel Radcliffe as Harry, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson as Harry's friends Ron and Hermione, and Tom Felton as Draco Malfoy... Rowling married Dr. Neil Murray in Scotland on 26 December 2001; their children are David (b. 2003) and Mackenzie (b. 2005). Rowling has one child, Jessica (b. 1993), from her previous marriage to Jorge Arantes, a Portuguese TV journalist.
Other fantastical British authors include J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, A.A. Milne and Ian Fleming.
Joanne Kathleen Rowling was born July 31, 1965 in Chipping, Gwent (England), where she lived and grew up for a while. After graduating from High School she continued her education at Exeter University, where she got her degree in French.
In 1990 and the years after, she sat in local cafes and diners writing out her ideas and planned out the plot for Harry's adventures for his 7 years at magic school. When she finished the first book, she went around trying to sell it to different Publishing companies, but was rejected by the first few. Then, she found an agent in London, named Christopher Little, and he eventually made a deal with Bloomsbury Children's Books, which published the first book in 1997.
