So who is the world’s highest paid author?

Take a guess without looking.  Who do you think is the highest paid author?  J.K. Rowling?  Thnk again.

As of June 2010, U.S. author James Patterson outranked the reigning queen herself, J.K. Rowling, and became the world’s highest paid author.  The irony of it all is according to this article at the Independent, Patterson might not be writing his own novels.  And, if this is true, who is?

No names have been released, but we do know it’s a writing team of five authors who write Patterson’s books and he doesn’t care who knows it.  “Thousands of people don’t like what I do,” Patterson told The New York Times. “Fortunately, millions do.”

Knowing this, it doesn’t defray the buying public a bit.  According to Forbes Magazine, “…one in every 17 books bought in the US is written – or co-written – by Patterson.”
