Harry Potter's creator J.K. Rowling turns 50

Joanne "Jo" Rowling turns the big 5-0 and her most beloved creation Harry Potter gets another year older on the same date. The creator of the wizarding series was first propelled into the spotlight in 1997 with the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. She was a struggling single mum who saw her manuscript rejected by 12 publishing houses before Bloomsbury finally gave her a chance.
