Erika has been recognized again for her work, this time she’s made the Forbes Celebrity 100 list.
How did she do on the list which contains names like Oprah, Stephen Spielberg. Jennifer Lopez, Ellen, Lady Gaga and Angelina Jolie? EL James is #42, an impressive place for a woman who is known for her first book series that happens to contain a lot of kinky sex. Of course without the kinky sex the book probably wouldn’t have become a phenomenon.
In case you were wondering, her money rank was #3 on the list, she brought in $95 million dollars last year, that’s a lot more than just 50 Shades of Grey!
But what’s the biggest significance of this? That a mother of 2 can sit down and write a book for herself. Oh, and the books were written in two of the most looked down parts of publishing – fan fiction and erotic romance. Erika shouldn’t have succeeded on paper, but she did.
