Danielle Steel Net Worth

Danielle Steel Net Worth $390 Million

This prolific author started nurturing her writing career as a child and had her first novel published by the time she was 20. Despite her love for writing, Danielle hoped to become a nun in her younger years. We reckon her ambition was influenced by her Catholic background.

Danielle Steel was born in 1947 in New York but spent her formative years in France. She studied in New York University where she graduated with a degree in literature design and fashion. She never worked in the industry, but the haute couture collector still has fashion under her skin. Before her writing career took off, Danielle worked in a PR firm where she hosted parties for clients and created PR campaigns.

She made a mark in the writing industry with the novel Going Home, which focused on family issues and human relationships. Danielle draws her inspiration from her life experiences. Her novel Klone and I was inspired by a private joke between her and her then husband James Perkins. She wrote the book His Bright Light to honor the memory of her son who died after a heroin overdose.

Danielle releases three books each year, and often has to work on five books at a time. She has written over 40 bestselling books, and in 1989, was listed in the Guinness Book of World records for being on the New York Times Bestseller List for the most consecutive weeks. Her attention to detail and ability to tell stories explicitly has seen twenty-two of her books adapted to T.V. The films have received critical acclaim with two receiving Golden Globe nominations.

Danielle first got married when she was 18 and till now, has been through four other marriages.  Her fifth marriage to Thomas James Perkins ended in 2002.  She has a loyal following of fans that are hooked to her epic novels.  Danielle Steel’s writing prowess remains unequaled with over 120 books under the belt.

Critics have claimed her novels are redundant and boring, but with a net worth of $390 million the negative criticism has only increased her fan base making her the world’s most read novelist.
