The creator of Harry Potter hits 46 today!

Joanne “Jo” Rowling, better known as JK Rowling, came up with the idea for the incredible Harry Potter books on the train. The series sold over 400 million copies and gained worldwide attention. She also was the producer of the final installment for the movies so she could keep creative control. JK is said to have a net worth of US $1 billion, and ranked the twelfth richest woman in the United Kingdom. She is well-known for her “rags to riches” life story and most feel her net worth will pass Oprah‘s.

In 1992, the author married Jorge Arantes and they had a daughter, Jessica Rowling Arantes. They divorced in 1993 and in 2001 she married Neil Murray. With him she had two children, David Gordon Rowling Murray and Mackenzie Jean Rowling Murray, and the couple is together until this day.

“Single parents want the same life chances for their children as all parents,” she once spoke of her single parent phase. “But the risk of poverty is much higher, and many are still dealing with separation and isolation. This is why our work on parenting and poverty is vital.”

Well happy birthday, JK! You only deserve the best!
