As far as I know, the only age restrictions would come if there are legally binding contracts to sign, and then you would have to be 18.

It's really not that hard. Just tell me a story.

If you want to sell your work via Amazon, you have to fill out paperwork for taxes - if you are a minor, I'm not sure what kind of parental notifications are needed - it's been a long while since I was a minor and I'm sure some of those laws have changed over time.
