Forbes's Highest-Paid Authors List: Women Gaining Ground
Although men still occupy four of the top five spots on Forbes magazine's "World's Top-Earning Authors" list, this year it has been women "who've been making the boldest moves." Suzanne Collins, E.L. James and J.K. Rowling all edged up the charts. Thanks to the success of HBO's Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin didn't do so badly, either. The top-earning authors were:
1.James Patterson ($94 million)
2.Stephen King ($39 million)
3.Janet Evanovich ($33 million)
4.John Grisham ($26 million)
5.Jeff Kinney ($25 million)
6.Bill O'Reilly ($24 million)
7.Nora Roberts ($23 million)
8.Danielle Steel ($23 million)
9.Suzanne Collins ($20 million)
10.Dean Koontz ($19 million)
11.J.K. Rowling ($17 million)
12.George R.R. Martin ($15 million)
13.Stephenie Meyer ($14 million)
14.Ken Follett ($14 million)
15.Rick Riordan ($13 million)
