British writer of the immensely popular series of "Harry Potter" books. In three short years from her first book in 1997 about an 11-year-old schoolboy wizard, Rowlings has had a fantastic success. Her first three books have sold an amazing 30 million copies and have been translated into 31 languages. She has gone from being a penniless single mother to a famous author worth more than $20 million.

Rowland married a journalist in 1992, had a baby daughter Jessica in 1993, and divorced a year later. Reduced to living on welfare with an infant, she wrote "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." Published in 1997, the book caused a sensation and led to "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" and "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban." Her fourth book, "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," was released in July 2000 to millions of waiting hands, young and old.

On 9 November 2001, the fervently awaited movie of Harry Potter opened in the U.S. By now fabulously wealthy, Rowlings, who had written the first book in dire poverty, bought Killiechassie House in Scotland, built in 1865.

The wildly successful author married Dr. Neil Murray, an anesthetist, on 26 December 2001, at their house in Perthshire, attended only by immediate family. They had met in Edinburgh a little more than a year ago.

On 23 March 2003, she and Neil Murray welcomed their son David into the world. The well-known author gave birth to their second child, her third, a girl named Mackenzie Jean Rowling Murray, in the evening of 23 January 2005 in Edinburgh.

Neal Meredith obtained the British birth certificate and it confirms the July 31st '65 date; no time given.

On 19 January 2017, in reply to the question "Can you tell us your ascendant sign?" she tweeted "Aquarius". Between 20:32 and 21:40 her Ascendant is Aquarius. At 21:10 it is 15° Aquarius, which has been adopted as rectified time here.

(Prior to this: Date given in media; time unknown, born near Little Whinging, Surrey, England, (Chipping Sodbury General Hospital, it sounds like it's near Bristol England.)

Sandra Rozhon writes, 1/2001, "I e-mailed the agent of Joanne K.Rowling (author of the Harry Potter books) requesting her birthdata. A reply just came in that she wishes to maintain her privacy and does not want to provide the information." Sandy has a spec of 8:44 PM as well as a specific Lat/Long for Chipping Sodbury, 51N31 2W22, from an URL of the UK.

Lepoivre gives a birth time of 10.45 am, quoting, but this must be considered completely hypothetical. The chart is no longer on the website quoted by Lepoivre.
