Anne Rice Net Worth: Anne Rice is an American author of Gothic fiction, Christian literature, and erotica who has a net worth of $50 million. Anne Rice earned her net worth through her writing of gothic, mysteries, religious and other genres, with some of her books being adapted into comic books. Born Howard Allen Frances O'Brien on October 4, 1941, in New Orleans, Louisiana, US, she is probably best known for her popular series of novels, The Vampire Chronicles, revolving around the fictional character of Lestat. Two of the books from the Vampire Chronicles have been made into successful movies, Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles in 1994, and Queen of the Damned in 2002. However, numerous other works emerged from Rice's pen. On her first day of Catholic school, Howard told the nuns her name was Anne, and it has remained Anne ever since. After she lost her mother at 14, Anne moved to Texas where she went to high school and went on to attend the Texas Women's University and later North Texas State College. Anne married her high-school darling Stan Rice in 1961. The couple lived in San Francisco, they both attended San Francisco State University there and graduated in 1964. After her graduation she got a teaching job and she also started writing. Anne first wrote the short story, Interview with the Vampire, that later would be expanded into a novel and would change her life forever. In 1966, the couple had a baby girl, Michele, who unfortunately would die of leukemia six years later. Even though Anne was grief-stricken she would continue to write, completing the novel Interview with the Vampire in 1976 and later its sequels throughout the 1980s. Her other works include The Mayfair Witch Trilogy, The Sleeping Beauty Trilogy, as well as other stand alone novels like The Feast of All Saints and Servant of the Bones, among many others. Having sold nearly 100 million copies, her books placed her among the most popular authors in recent American history. After she lost her husband Stan to brain cancer in 2002, Anne continued to write religious texts and spiritual memoirs. Nowadays, she prefers to spend more time with her son Christopher who is also a writer.
