People reports: James earned an estimated $95 million from her kinky tale of romance between Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele – which was originally written as fan fiction based on Twilight's vampire characters. (We hope James is sending Twilight author Stephenie Meyer a huge thank-you present.)
Forbes reports that James, a former TV exec who lives in the U.K. who also earned $5 million for the right to a film version of the sex-filled story, sold more copies faster than any other author in history – more than 70 million in the first eight months they were on sale in the U.S.
