48 Celebrities Who Wrote Fiction…Who Knew!?


48 Celebrities Who Wrote Fiction

As time goes on and I dive farther into this writing journey I’m finding out so many things I had no clue existed.

Like, for instance there are celebrities/famous people who have written fiction!

Sure, I knew there were markets drowning in non fiction works from famous people writing tell-all books about their life and experiences but I honestly had no idea they ventured into the fiction industry.

I wonder, did they actually write these works of fiction on their own?

Did they pine away at their laptop or typewriter hashing out plots, dialogue and characters,wracking their brains for a story that not only flows well but was entertaining to read?

Probably not. Sure, some might have taken the leap into writing on their own but for the most part I bet they used Ghost Writers.

There are few that have great back stories, like for instance, Johnny Cash’s “Man in White” is a biblical fiction book about the Apostle Paul. Really. I’m not kidding! lol
