James Patterson is one of the most prolific authors of our time.
To date, Patterson has penned almost 90 books, and he doesn’t just write for adults. His “Witch & Wizard” series for children has netted him a wide audience among tweens and teens.
In 2010, he was voted the Children’s Book Councils’ Children’s Choice Book Awards “Author of the Year” by over 15,000 young people who chose him over other New York Times best-selling writers like, Rick Riordan (author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, the Kane Chronicles, and the Heroes of Olympus), Jeff Kinney (author of the Wimpy Kid series), Carl Hiaasen (author of Flush, Hoot and Scat) and Suzanne Collins (author of The Hunger Games series).
Of those almost 90 books, 63 of those titles have made the New York Times bestsellers list, which is a Times bestsellers’ record.
Patterson has grossed over $3 billion in worldwide book sales, and readers have purchased of over 220 million books.
