Rowling pens novel under false name

AN ex-military man tries his hand at writing, publishes a debut detective novel, and wins critical acclaim. But here's the twist: the true identity of the author is none other than 'Harry Potter' creator JK Rowling, right.

It's impressive literary wizardry by Rowling, who said she relished the freedom of writing 'The Cuckoo's Calling' under her pseudonym, Robert Galbraith.

"I hoped to keep this secret a little longer because being Robert Galbraith has been such a liberating experience," she said in a statement yesterday.

The 'Sunday Times' claimed it was investigating "how a first-time author could write such an assured debut novel" when it connected the dots.
