"Honey I blew up an egg in the microwave!" I never knew eggs could explode, but yep, that's what happened to me this morning because I forgot to set the power level to low.(lol)
Anywho, it would be absolutely wonderful if every writer in the world could make tons of money because they deserve it for all that hard work; according to www.Forbes.com, only a few hit the million+ dollar ranking. Here they are below:
James Patterson - are you surprised that he's worth $93 million?
Stephen King - has made close to $39 million by scaring us
Janet Evanovich - $33 million
John Grisham - $26 million
Jeff Kinney - writes the Wimpy Kids' series, and is worth $25 million
Bill O-Reilly - doesn't just have to be on tv to earn his millions, and is worth $24 million
Nora Roberts - I still have no clue how she manages to crank out 2-3 books on average per year, and is worth $23 million.
Danielle Steel - I read her work when I was a kid and she's still around doing what she does best at $23 million.
Suzanne Collins - I'd never heard of her,( what can I say?) until I saw the first Hunger Games movie, but she's worth $20 million.
Dean Koontz - another author who has frightful talent, being worth $19 million.
J.K. Rowling - stopped writing about Harry Potter, but that doesn't mean the money isn't still rolling in - $17 million
George R.R. Martin - another new to me author, yet I hear everyone absolutely loves Game of Thrones - $15 million
