Toni Morrison is a novelist, editor, professor and winner of a Nobel Prize and Pulitzer Prize, with a net worth of $24 million. Toni Morrison has earned her net worth through her many novels and her co-writing of children's books with her son, Slade, as well as her position as an English Professor. She was born in Lorain, Ohio, U.S.
Toni Morrison (born Chloe Ardelia Wofford; February 18, 1931) is an American novelist, editor, and professor. Her novels are known for their epic themes, vivid dialogue, and richly detailed characters. Among her best known novels are The Bluest Eye, Sula, Song of Solomon and Beloved. She also was commissioned to write the libretto for a new opera, Margaret Garner, first performed in 2005. She won the Nobel Prize in 1993 and in 1987 the Pulitzer Prize for Beloved.
