HOMES OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS - AUTHORS EDITION

TypewriterSince January, 2021, I've written a series of articles about properties previously owned by actors, musicians, and industrialists who've become famous in their respective fields (click here to check them out). So, up next, I've decided to write another article featuring another vocation… authors. Or to be more specific about it, these famous authors 👇 who've lived life and had a handsome home…


Ebay AD




Anne Rice
Full Name:
Anne Rice / Place of Birth: New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.
Date of Birth: October 4, 1941 / Date Passed Away: December 11, 2021 (aged 80)
Some of the Books She's Written: 'Interview with the Vampire' (1976) and 'The Queen of the Damned' (1988)
Value of Their Property in 2018: $4.5 million
Associated Trivia: It was once suggested that Anne Rice was inspired to partly base some of her characters on the French aristocracy (i.e., Lestat de Lioncourt) due to the ties her hometown (New Orleans) has with the French royal family. Well, New Orleans was named after the French Regent, Philippe II, a.k.a. the Duke of Orléans, and was founded in 1718 by French colonists.




John Steinbeck
Full Name: John Steinbeck / Place of Birth: Salinas, California, U.S.
Date of Birth: February 27, 1902 / Date Passed Away: December 20, 1968 (aged 66)
Some of the Books He's Written: 'Of Mice and Men' (1937), 'The Grapes of Wrath' (1939), and 'East of Eden' (1952)
Value of Their Property in 2021: $16.75 million
Associated Trivia: Many years before John Steinbeck bought a house in Sag Harbor, New York, it became a pretty popular port for the whaling industry. In fact, it became so popular, that by 1789, Congress decided to make it the first official port of entry to the United States.




Jean Kerr
Full Name:
Jean Kerr / Place of Birth: Scranton, Pennsylvania, U.S.
Date of Birth: July 10, 1922 / Date Passed Away: January 5, 2003 (aged 80)
Some of the Books She's Written: 'Please Don't Eat the Daisies' (1957) and 'The Snake Has All the Lines' (1960)
Value of Their Property in 2021: $5.495 million
Associated Trivia: As Sean stated in the video, Larchmont, New York, is the 15th wealthiest neighborhood in America and was once the home to both Jean Kerr and her husband, Walter. But what he failed to mention, was that originally an Algonquian tribe (called, the 'Siwanoy') lived there, until they sold their land to a dubious merchant from Hampshire, England, for a minimal amount of goods and trinkets.




Mark Twain
Full Name: Mark Twain / Place of Birth: Florida, Missouri, U.S.
Date of Birth: November 30, 1835 / Date Passed Away: April 21, 1910 (aged 74)
Some of the Books He's Written: 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer' (1876) and 'Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' (1884)
Value of Their Property in 2021: $4.2 million
Associated Trivia: Aside from being the last place Mark Twain would call home, Redding, Connecticut, is also a fairly decent place to make films, films like 'Valley of the Dolls' (1967), 'The Last House on the Left' (1972), and 'The Stepford Wives' (1975), to name but a few.

In closing, I'd like to thank Sean and the team over at toptenrealestatedeals.com for allowing me to include their videos in this article, before encouraging you to check out their Website, Facebook, and Twitter pages.
