Harry Potter's creator, J.K. Rowling, was the top woman earner in Britain this year, a new list revealed Sunday.

Her annual pay of $77 million was six times greater than the salary of Queen Elizabeth, according to an annual list of The Mail on Sunday newspaper. The writer was followed on the list by pop superstar Madonna's pay of 27 million pounds. The U.S. singer and actress qualified for the list because she lives in London with her film director husband Guy Ritchie. Next in line were investment banker Robin Saunders, "Weakest Link" TV quiz presenter Anne Robinson and Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones.
