U.S. magazine Forbes has released yet another list, this one of the "The World's 100 Most Powerful Women." Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is listed at number 85.
It has been a rapid ascent for Rowling, 39, the creator of the Harry Potter media phenomenon. Since the release of her first novel, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," Rowling has sold 250 million copies and become a billionaire in the process. Three films about the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry have grossed more than $2 billion at the box office worldwide. Rowling is currently writing the next installment in the Potter series. A fourth movie is now being filmed. Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
