JK Rowling net worth: Her enormous fortune and how much she earns on average each year?
J.K. Rowling is both a writer and a producer. She is the Harry Potter author.
She is reportedly among the wealthiest private persons in the UK.
Author of the Harry Potter books is JK Rowling. In 1997, Rowling released the first novel about the wizarding realm.
Where’s JK Rowling From?
1965 saw the birth of Joanne Rowling in Yate, Gloucestershire, England. JK Rowling has been writing short fantasy stories since she was a child.
Rowling didn’t have the best childhood, in her testimony. She and her father had a “strained relationship.” JK Rowling also had to deal with her mother’s multiple sclerosis-related health issues.
While working as a secretary and researcher for Amnesty International in 1990, Rowling entertained thoughts of Harry Potter.
The author claims to have had a dream about a youngster who learned he might enroll in a wizardry school. When the thought first entered Rowling’s head, she took a trip from Manchester to London.
JK Rowling completed “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone,” her debut book, in 1995.
But each of the 12 publishing houses she visited turned down her proposal.
It wasn’t until 1996 that Bloomsbury Publishing chose to publish JK Rowling’s book and handed her more than $1,500 in advance.
The chairman of Bloomsbury’s daughter and spouse reportedly reviewed the draft and adored the tale.
The second book was started as soon as JK Rowling received a grant from the Scottish Arts Council, and the rest is history.
