Why is J.K. Rowling the richest and most successful story writer in the history of the world?

What are the reasons behind the success of Harry Potter?

    Because infantile adults went mad over a kids book, then there were the films and the merchandising.

    doubt she is most successful - I bet more people in the World have read Tolstoy than her - and got more out of it.

    It depends on how you measure success she has had many songs written about her work but the many more of the songs written about JRR Tolkien's works have been played on the radio. We will see if people are still reading Harry Potter in 80 years

    She made a fortune off the Harry Potter movies

    She knows how to steal other author's work and profit from them. Like Harry Potter is basically "The Wizard of Earthsea" by Ursula Le Guin.
