This lie is in the cover of every Harry Potter book.
According to her birth certificate, Joanne Rowling doesn't have a middle name.
The use of her initials instead of her full first name was a marketing ploy designed to make her work acceptable to boys.
Boys actively choose to not to read books written by women.
Her publicists have always said her full name was Joanne Kathleen Rowling, but a copy of her birth certificate obtained by a British newspaper in 2001 lacks a middle name at all.
Rowling was born in 1965 near Bristol, England. She was a single mother on welfare when she began writing the Harry Potter series.
In an interview, Rowling said that it was the publisher's idea to call her J K Rowling and that they could have called her Enid Snodgrass for all she cared, so long as her book was published.
Her books are an international sensation and major motion pictures popular worldwide. She is an inspiration to women everywhere for her major accomplishments and perseverance.
