And the top earning authors are:-

Never heard of Kinney, but I've read six of the others.

Good to see two (three if you stretch a point and include Nora Roberts) horror writers in there.

Disappointed to see Patterson at #1, as he's always struck me as a very mediocre writer, but he did take 14 books to get there whereas King is in second with probably higher earnings per title.

Jeff Kinney writes the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. My 9 year old loves them.
