Writers Way Wealthier Than You Will Ever Be

The World's Best Paid Authors according to Forbes

J.K. Rowling #1

Worth it, IMHO. But she has been getting drunk with power as of late: see her recent lawsuits and crazy demands for her upcoming title, Tales of Beedle the Bard.

James Patterson #2

Oh, Pul-eese. Further evidence of the dumbing down of America. Publishes more books in a year than I read. Often, with co-writers, so draw your own conclusions.

Stephen King #3

Worth it. You go, big guy. But feel free to cut the vacation with the grandkids short to surpass that Patterson hack.

Tom Clancy #4

Good. I don't begrudge him this slot, but not a top favorite of mine.

Danielle Steel #5

See Patterson, James.
