JK Rowling's new crime novel

  • The author of the famous Harry Potter series managed to write a new novel under the pen name "Robert Galbraith".

    This crime novel called The Cuckoo's Calling was released in April and got plenty of positive reviews. Rowling said that doing so has proven to be a pleasant experience for her because she got feedback without any expectations or hype. Her new book is a story about a war veteran turned private eye who is looking into the death of a model. 

    In fact, her "real" name J.K. Rowling is itself not her real one. She was born Joanne Rowling but the fear of not being accepted as a writer by young boys made her change her name.
