About ...

J.K. Rowling is known across the globe as the author of the Harry Potter book series, which has sold over 450 million copies worldwide.

When J.K. Rowling wrote the first Harry Potter book, she was a single mom struggling financially. Her book agent spent a year trying to publish her book, which at first was rejected by 12 publishers! The first title, "Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone", quickly became popular, even though the publisher printed only 1,000 copies initially. Harry Potter went on to become the best-selling book series in history.
