As an author, the woman who writes under the pen-name of Zane has had a lot of success. She has sold millions of novels, and she has also been involved in work on a recent movie. This movie is going to be called "Addicted." Despite this success, though, reports show that the author filed for bankruptcy back in the summer.
Part of the problem appears to be that she owes back taxes, both on the state and federal level. Some accounts put the amount that she owes the Internal Revenue Service at $540,000, though she technically said she did not know how much she owed when filing. On top of that, she owes $337,151.85 to the state of Maryland.
