Harry Potter creator J. K. Rowling has been outed as retired military policeman turned first time crime author Robert Galbraith. Rowling wrote “The Cuckoo’s Calling” under the alias, and said, “I had hoped to keep this secret a little longer because being Robert Galbraith has been such a liberating experience… It has been wonderful to publish without hype or expectation, and pure pleasure to get feedback under a different name.”
It’s reported the Sunday Times became suspicious of the first time writer, which led to uncovering Rowling.
Convenient! She gets the pleasure of publishing a low profile book without expectation, and now she gets to enjoy the sales of the creator of Harry Potter! Good for her!
