1. Tina Fey

Actress and screenwriter Tina Fey has been making us laugh for years on shows such as SNL and 30 Rock, but in 2012, Fey embraced her writing side and released a nonfiction book called Bossypants, in which Fey tells her life story using her trademark wit and laugh-out-loud humor. Bossypants topped the New York Times best-sellers list, with more than 1 million copies sold in the U.S. alone. The actress even received a Grammy nomination for her narration of the audio book.
