Becoming a writer is not an easy task. It doesn’t always pay the bills, and there is a lot more to having a successful book than just writing a masterpiece. The way you market and advertise your book may be the make or break for its success. Even great writers get discouraged if they see their book not performing well. Yet, even in such times, to pursue writing is a brave act, and those who do must be supported in any and every way possible.

There have been many up-and-coming writers that are making their mark on the world. So we’ve taken it upon us to make a list of the top five aspiring authors of the 21st century. After a rigorous screening process, we selected the list of writers. The list may have some surprises and some familiar names that you may know but not precisely for writing.

If you like James Bond and Mission Impossible, then he’s the guy for you.

Carol Shaben

Age has no meaning when it comes to writing. It takes courage to start your writing journey, and none so accurately fits that description as Carol Shaben. Carol Shaben used to have a corporate career before she shifted to pursue a career in storytelling. Her books focus on stories of individuals who showcase courage, bravery, conviction, and heroism. Into the Abyss, her first book, received widespread acclaim and became a national bestseller in Canada.

Her recent book, The Marriott Cell, co-written with renowned writer Mohamed Fahmy, focuses on freedom of speech and freedom of press. This book is essential especially considering recent times and the rise of “Fake News” Her experience as a journalist allows her to delve deep into the lives of her characters. This experience helps her create real, relatable characters that give us hope and belief that the world can be a better place. All her books are aimed with the intention of elevating humanity.

Hillary Clinton

Well, we are nearing the end of our list. We kept this one as a bit of surprise. It almost seems there isn’t anything Hilary Clinton cannot do. The first-ever presidential nominee of a major party in 2016, Hillary Rodham Clinton, is a woman with a plan. She was Secretary of State for President Obama and the First Lady when her husband Bill Clinton became the president of the United States in 1993.

After serving the public for nearly four decades, it is safe to say Hillary has specific insights into the political world that not many politicians or journalists would have. Having the experience of helping run the nation first hand means that Hillary has tons of experiences that she shares in the books she writes. After her loss in the 2016 election, she wrote a book, “What Happened,” giving insights into the campaign, the Democratic Party, and the opposition. Her insights haven’t stopped coming in, as, in 2021, she came out with her book State of Terror, which critiques the government’s inability to govern and the incompetence at the top. If you want to understand the USA’s political landscape better, then her books are the best way to go about it.

In the age of piracy, it is disheartening for authors to see their hard work be accessed without their due share. However, supporting our writers is a societal responsibility. Storytelling is essential. Stories change minds and people. If we support such great writers, we pave the way for future generations to aspire and change the world through their storytelling.
