Patricia Cornwell is a successful crime fiction novelist, originally from Florida, with an estimated net worth of $40 million dollars. Patricia Cornwell has published 20 novels in her popular Kay Scarpetta series about a medical examiner. She has also published five non-fiction novels and has published five other novels with two other series.
Patricia Cornwell (born Patricia Carroll Daniels; June 9, 1956) is a contemporary American crime writer. She is widely known for writing a popular series of novels featuring the heroine Dr. Kay Scarpetta, a medical examiner.
A descendant of abolitionist and writer Harriet Beecher Stowe, Cornwell was born in Miami, Florida to Marilyn and Sam Daniels. Her father was one of the leading appellate lawyers in the United States and served as a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black.

All he did was write on a legal pad 'How's work?'"
In 1961, Cornwell's family moved to Montreat, North Carolina, where her mother was hospitalized for depression. Cornwell and her brothers, Jim and John, were placed in the foster care system. Cornwell attended King College in Bristol, Tennessee, before transferring to Davidson College, where she graduated with a B.A. in English.
In 1979, Cornwell started working as a reporter for The Charlotte Observer and soon began covering crime.
