The author of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling is to be offered a peerage by Tony Blair in recognition of her contribution to literature.
Ms. Rowling will be called Baroness Rowling when she is included on a list of new "working peers" drawn up by Mr. Blair to bolster the Government in the House of Lords.
A senior MP who has worked on the list said:
She is likely to be offered her peerage in one of the New Year or Birthday Honours lists to be agreed between Downing Street and the Queen over the next year.
