George Norman Lippert with his son, Zane.

George "Geo" Norman Lippert (better known as G. Norman Lippert), is an American author and computer-animator best known for writing the James Potter series of books, an uncanonical sequel-series to Harry Potter that has earned him the nick-name, the "American Rowling".

Lippert's debut novel, James Potter and the Hall of Elders' Crossing, was released online in 2007 to critical and commercial acclaim. Mistaken as actually being written by Rowling herself, it become the subject of much controversy. After living a series of legal and negative situations following the book's release, he went on to make an entire series about James Potter, which today, is an international success, and the subject of the independently released, James Potter film series.

He currently lives in Erie, Pennsylvania with his wife Jael, and two children, Zane and Greer.
