Who is Robert Galbraith?
Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling. She chose the name because she really loved the name Robert, the name also of one of her heroes; Robert F Kennedy. And Galbraith was a name she loved as a kid. She decided to write under the pseudonym to try and have some anonymity and be able to have this work disassociated from her success with the Harry Potter series. She was unmasked just a few months after The Cuckoo’s Calling was released by a UK Newspaper article.
Taken from Robert Galbraith’s website (J.K. Rowling):
Yes, I really wanted to go back to the beginning of a writing career in this new genre, to work without hype or expectation and to receive totally unvarnished feedback. I wanted it to be just about the writing. It was a fantastic experience and I only wish it could have gone on a little longer than it did. I was grateful at the time for all the feedback from publishers and readers, and for some great reviews. Being Robert Galbraith was all about the work, which is my favourite part of being a writer.
Since my cover has been blown, I continue to write as Robert to keep the distinction from other writing and because I rather enjoy having another persona.
