10 Authors Who Wrote Books Before Turning 21

||

I’m currently 21 and I’m contemplating pursuing a career in writing. The problem is that I don’t write as much as I should, and I doubt the quality of what I do write. But then I realized that there are people out there who write and create regardless of their age. Through some searching around, I was able to find authors who were published by the time they were 21 or wrote books while they were teens. Hopefully, they serve as a source of inspiration for you as well.

Graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill. She's one of those people who loves school (or is afraid of the real world) so, she's getting her MFA in Screenwriting from the University of Southern California. If she's not writing, then she's writing. Or if she's really not writing, she's watching Netflix (aren't we all?).
