Having recently completed my own novel - "Dear Jennie" - I can tell you that you must be willing to do a great deal of research and spend a large amount of time working on your story in order to make it believable. Not to mention the difficulty in having your work published, especially being a first time author and being so young. After so many rejections from established book publishing companies, I eventually had to go the self publishing route. My advice to you would be to write your story because you enjoy writing it and not because of any future riches that you think you may gain from it. Writing should always be enjoyable, and any other benefit that you may gain from it should be secondary. Good luck to you and remember to have fun with it!!!!!
