Harold Robbins

Age: 81

Robbins is known for his best-selling, steamy novels that revolved around sex, money and power. The characters in Robbins's novels often resembled famous figures such as Howard Hughes and Marilyn Monroe. The films Never Love a Stranger and The Carpetbaggers were based on his books. Despite the scorn of critics, Robbins remained confident in his work and described himself “as the best writer in the world.”
