The truth is that writing a novel takes a long time. It’s not just writing 80 000 words. It’s the years spent perfecting the craft and actually learning how to write something that other people will want to read.

It’s not surprising that most successful authors are only published later in life. Here are 27 writers and their ages when they found fame.

    I am 60 and starting to write. Taking my time on my first drafts. Guessing, the book may take me a couple years. It is a non-fiction with the appearance at times to be most fictional, but it is a True Story with True Events.
