Patricia Cornwell Net Worth $18 Million

She is regarded as one of America’s most popular crime writers with sales surpassing the 100 million copies mark. She derives her inspiration from her father’s emotional abuse. Her mother subsequently suffered from depression leading her and her brothers to be placed under foster care.

She got her B.A in English from Davidson College and started working as a crime reporter for The Charlotte Observer. Later, she worked as a technical writer for Virginia’s Chief Medical Examiner and worked on three novels that were later rejected. Her first successful novel became the Kay Scarpetta series, which consisted of elaborate forensic science procedures.

The series provided the inspiration for critically praised TV shows such as CSI. She is also known for the Andy Brazil/Judy Hammer series that is classified as a pseudo-police fiction. Despite her troubles, she is known to be a very charitable person and has donated to the Virginia Institute for Forensic Science and Medicine as well as advocating for psychiatric research. She is worth $18 million.
