The short answers are: Donald Lau, yes and no.
The New Yorker ran a story on Mr. Lau back in 2005. Lau was vice-president of Wonton Food, Inc. where he managed the accounts payable and receivable, negotiated with insurers, and and composed the fortunes that went inside Wonton Food's cookies.

Lau was chosen not for his writing ability, but simply because his English was the best of the group.

Donald Lau, vice-president of Wonton Inc, is the largest producer of fortune cookies in the world. He also has one of the more unusual roles in the building, as it is he who is in charge of writing the fortunes.
Luckily for Mr Lau that isn't the case and instead he simply recycles fortunes he has previously written in his decades as a fortune cookie writer.
