The World's First Billionaire Author

J.K. Rowling, author of the "Harry Potter" series, turns 50 years old today.

Rowling had an estimated net worth of more than $1 billion in 2014, according to the Sunday Times' UK Rich List, the result of her book sales, films and related products.

In addition to publishing seven "Harry Potter" novels and three companion books, Rowling has written a standalone novel, "The Casual Vacancy" and three books under the pseudonym Robert Galbaith, the most recent of which is due out in October.
