Tom Clancy? His books certainly =read= like a tech manual ;-).

Barbara Hambly (an SF author for those of you who don't know) worked as a
technical editor before she started writing fiction.

Could C.S. Lewis be considered a technical communicator? Or J.R.R.
Tolkien? Or Ursula LeGuin? All three of these authors have contributed
several essays on the nature of literature. (You didn't specify that
"technical" had to be technical to science or engineering. Each field
has its own jargon, language, technical oddities, etc.)
