J.K. Rowling is Robert Galbraith, author of The Cuckoo’s Calling.

It has been revealed today that Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is the writer behind The Cuckoo’s Calling, a crime novel published back in April under the pseudonym ‘Robert Galbraith’.

Rowling revealed she was the author of the 450-page novel earlier today, stating, “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.”

The Cuckoo’s Calling is Rowling’s second post-Potter novel, the first being The Casual Vacancy which was published in September of last year.
