George Norman Lippert with his son, Zane.

George "Geo" 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". Often under the pen-name, G. Norman Lippert (and sometimes simply as, G. N. Lippert), he began writing stories from an early point in his life, but his career never really took off until after the release of J. K. Rowling's, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Lippert, as a big fan of her books, subsequently purchased his own copy of The Deathly Hallows upon release. But like many other fans of her work, he was left in a state of disappointment, mostly towards the fact that her story (which he loved dearly), had come to an abrupt end.

For the sake of his own enjoyment, he began writing a continuation of the story, one that followed along Harry Potter's eldest son, James Potter. And after a little over the course of a month he had written a 400-page novel titled, James Potter and the Hall of Elders' Crossing, of which he created a website for and posted online with the encouragement of his wife.

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, having gained a million readers worldwide and being translated into over seven different languages (with more on the way).

He currently lives in St. Louis, Missouri with his wife Jael, and two children, Zane and Greer.
