6. Ernest Hemingway
Ernest’s talent of writing was imminent when in his teenage years he worked as an editor and writer for the yearbook and newspaper of his high school. Later he went on to work as a freelancer, foreign correspondent and staff writer. His writings are mostly inspired by the travels that he undertook during his working stint. His novels hold the distinction of being the classics of American literature, the most famous ones being For Whom The Bell Tolls and The Old Man And The Sea. The suicide of four members of his family after his suicide indicated that there was some hereditary illness that led him to take his life.
