Lee Child on Starting Writing After 40

Rebecca Bradley

I started writing later in my life. I’d had children, I already had a career I loved, and yet there was always this niggling voice in the back of my head telling me I had to write a novel. I wouldn’t be happy until I had. So as my age progressed on and I started fibbing about how old I was, I decided I needed to do something about it and I sat down and started typing. Yes, just like that. Hannah Robbins 2 has a lot more organisation about it than Shallow Waters did.

I found this short video where Lee Child talks about how he came to writing after 40. He believes it was the best thing for him.

Do you think writers need some life behind them to be able to write or can you write well at any age?
