自哈利•波特系列小说完结后,英国作家JK•罗琳去年又凭借《哈利•波特与被诅咒的孩子》舞台剧、同名剧本出版物,及该系列衍生电影《神奇动物在哪里》在全世界再掀魔法热潮,疯狂吸金9500万美元(约合人民币6.38亿元),也因此登上2017福布斯作家收入排行榜首位。这是近十年来她首次登顶。

Harry Potter creator JK Rowling has been named the world's most highly paid author with earnings of £72m this year.

《哈利•波特》作者JK•罗琳被评为今年全球收入最高的作家,年收入7200万英镑。

Rowling beat the likes of Dan Brown, Stephen King and John Grisham to top Forbes' list of the 10 highest earners in the global industry for the first time in almost 10 years.

她击败丹•布朗、史蒂芬•金和约翰•格里森姆等人,近10年内首次登顶《福布斯》杂志评选的全球十大高薪作家排行榜。

The announcement comes soon after her legions of worldwide fans celebrated the 20th anniversary of her first installment of the boy wizard series.

在全世界众多书迷欢庆哈利•波特系列小说第一部诞生20周年不久后,这则消息便随之而来。

She has written a further six Harry Potter titles, which have been turned into eight blockbuster feature films, and she last year made her screenwriting debut with a prequel movie, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.

罗琳还为哈利•波特系列创作了另外6部小说,并将它们拍成8部卖座大片。2016年由她首次担任编剧的哈利•波特前传电影《神奇动物在哪里》上映。

On Wednesday it was announced that the smash-hit stage play Harry Potter And The Cursed Child will move to Broadway next year.

2日有消息宣布,大受欢迎的舞台剧《哈利•波特与被诅咒的孩子》将于2018年登上百老汇舞台。

The mother-of-three, 52, first began writing about the wizarding world while struggling to make ends meet living as a single mother on benefits in Edinburgh.

现年52岁的罗琳是三个孩子的母亲。这位来自爱丁堡的单亲妈妈开始创作哈利•波特魔法世界时,要靠领救济金才能勉强维持生计。

The books' popularity soon made her a multi-millionaire and she has since released several other novels, founded children's charity Lumos, and amassed more than 11 million Twitter followers keen to keep track of her regularly shared thoughts on political and social issues.

《哈利•波特》小说的走红让她迅速成为百万富翁。此后她又发表了数部小说,创办了儿童慈善机构Lumos,并收获了1100多万热衷于关注她动态的推特粉丝,她经常在推特上分享对政治及社会问题的看法。

Aside from Rowling, the US business magazine's list also includes British authors Paula Hawkins and EL James - whose respective novels The Girl On The Train and 50 Shades Of Grey have both been turned into major movies in recent years - while the others are all American.

除罗琳之外,上榜的英国作家还有《火车上的女孩》的作者保拉•霍金斯和《五十度灰》的作者El•杰姆斯,这两部小说近年来都被拍成大片。榜单上的其他作家均来自美国。

List organizers added that Game Of Thrones creator George RR Martin, The Fault In Our Stars writer John Green and Divergent trilogy author Veronica Roth, just failed to make the top 10.

制作榜单的《福布斯》杂志还表示,《权力的游戏》作者乔治•RR•马丁,《星运里的错》作者约翰•格林,以及《分歧者》三部曲作者维罗尼卡•罗斯均未能进入榜单前10名。
