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.
