Though E.L. James has received recent headlines for the phenomenal sales of "Fifty Shades of Grey," stalwart James Patterson remains the highest-earning author, according to Forbes. The magazine estimates that Patterson made $94 million last year, with nearly all of that revenue coming from book sales and relatively little from TV and film royalties. Patterson published 14 new titles in 2011, Forbes said. Patterson manintains his prodigious output because he works as a writer/editor, often teaming with others who bang out thrillers under his direction.

Forbes has come up with a list of America's most stressful citie s and Baltimore comes in at no. 12. Well, geez. We're stressed out? No one had to tell me that. They could put Zoloft in all the reservoirs and we'd still be a city with a nervous condition. According to Forbes, which looked at quality of life indicators ranging from unemployment to number of hours spent working to housing affordability to traffic congestion, Baltimore's stress points include the high cost of living and poor air quality.
