After penning a success story like the Fifty Shades trilogy, it is but natural that the 50 year old English author would make it to the top of this list. With earnings of $95 million, she enjoys the top spot. The BDSM based novel has been flying off the shelves and has also inspired a movie adaptation. The first book of the trilogy, ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is soon going to turn into a movie and is eyeing release on the 1st of August 2014.
