Remember when Taylor Swift was gifted a knitted jumper with her own picture on it by one of her fans?

It was quite a sweet (although interesting) gesture, and we had honestly believed that the obsession with Tay-Tay had peaked at that point. Little did we know that Taylor was in fact keeping a secret from many of us:

Taylor is actually a novelist.

Now, can you just imagine how many copies that would sell? The queue would be out the door at bookshops around the world, we are almost 100 per cent certain.

In her recent GQ interview, Taylor just so happened to drop this nugget of information as she chatted about books. Her book to be more specific.

If you were hoping for an in-depth post-mortem of those famous relationships of hers, then unfortunately you’re going to be left mildly disappointed.

A Girl Named Girl, still in the possession of the 25-year old’s parents, was written when she was just 14. It was about a mother who wanted a son and instead had a girl.

So, what happened to her writing career? Obviously she’s still writing music, but what about the books?

Around the time Taylor wrote the unpublished novel, her family moved to Nashville which was in order to jump start her music career.

When asked if they hadn’t moved she hadn’t become a hugely successful singer, she reckons she would still be using all of her ‘words and ideas’.

“I would have gone to college, and I would probably be involved with a form of business where words and ideas are at the forefront. Such as marketing.”
