Hollywood's 25 Most Powerful Authors

Suzanne Collins
 The Hollywood Reporter selected the 25 most powerful authors.
"THR selected those living authors who have been most successful in shepherding their books from page to screen, balancing success in publishing (total output, sales, best-sellers) and in Hollywood (completed adaptations, projects in development, screenwriting and producing credits) while accounting for cultural influence. More power to them."
Interested in seeing who made the list? You can view the top 5 below. View the full list at the source.

  1. YAY Suzanne. And SMH for EL James making the list. But to each their own I guess.

  2. What's sad is that their are no people of color of this list. I believe that Zane was one of the first to sell as many copies (if not more) as EL James, but you never hear much about that.

    1. Zane appears on 'Hollywood's Most Powerful Authors: Six Writers to Watch List' linked in the post as 'Authors to Look Out For' You can view it here: http://bit.ly/TFJ13g

      At least one of Zane's books is in the beginning process of an adaptation so we might see her on THR's next list.
