The Driving Force Behind James Patterson

According to an article in The Daily Telegraph (Friday 28th April 2006) James Patterson is “the author of more new No 1 bestselling titles in the past five years than Dan Brown, J K Rowling, Tom Clancy and John Grisham put together”. His books allegedly earn him $40 million a year.

When the reporter, Cassandra Jardine, asked what drives him now, his reply was “a desire to provide for his family”.

All I can say is that, with $40 million per year, his family must be very demanding!
