David Shore tops annual list of highest-paid authors

In 2019 it looked like the author’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (July 29) that Shore is the highest-paid author in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between June 2020 and June 2021, a nearly $30 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The Canadian author-producer has an estimated net worth of $185 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Shore Burger” chain) in Ottawa, a Football Team (the “London Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondershore - Canada), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from David) and a fashion line called “David Shore Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many David fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
