 J.K. Rowling
was born on 31 July 1965 in Bristol, United Kingdom.As the author of the
Harry Potter 
 books, she met profound success. Thenovels won many awards, sold more than 400 million copies and have been the basis for six very popular movies, with more on the way.Rowling studied French and Classics at the University of Exeter, alsospending a year in Paris. Afterwards, she worked in London as aresearcher for Amnesty International. In 1990, she started writing
 Harry Potter 
. During the course of her writing and until the publication of thefirst story,
Harry Potter and the
Sorcerer's Stone
in 1997, she facedmany misfortunes. Not long after getting married and moving to Porto,around 1992, she gave birth to a child. Joyous events in themselves, her marriage quickly ended in divorce and depression. Returning to Londonas a single mother and with a myriad of personal and health problems,Rowling nevertheless succeeded in getting her first novel published - thefirst step of a big career and fame.In 1998 she published the second novel,
Harry Potter and theChamber of Secrets
, and in 1999 and 2000 respectively gave her growing number of fans
Harry Potter and 
the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
. By 2000, Rowling had soldover a million copies of her books and was awarded the prize of the BestWriter of the Year in British Book Awards. Taking a long break after theinitial success, she left her dedicated readers in the waiting room for threeyears, not releasing
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
until 21 June 2003. The passage of these three years, as I have foundthrough my analysis of all of the novels, signified a significant shift in her writings. Rowlingµs books became darker and more politically directed.
This distinct turn in the novels continued and on 16 July 2005
HarryPotter and the Half-Blood Price
for which Rowling once more wonthe British Book Award of the Best Writer of the Year, entered bookstores. The seventh, and final book,
Potter and theDeathly Hallows
was released on 11 January 2007. The lastinstallment of the
 Harry Potter 
novels immediately sold 11 million copies just in
reat Britain and United States of America. Currently, she is oneof the most wildly popular authors and Rowling's
 Harry Potter 
 brand isestimated to be worth more than $14 billion dollars, and the author iscredited as bringing youths back into the world of reading.
