History as it was lived by real people
History facts and figures are just that: the basic skeletons of what events occurred on a particular day or in a particular time period. They don’t tell a historical story.
The Joy of Historical Fiction Books and Stories
A history novel is far more than basic facts. History is the story of the lives of people: without people – and their reactions – to events, the events just sit on a page. Both historical fiction stories and non-fiction narrative make the facts real and significant.
That’s what I do. I take the historical facts and make the facts become someone’s life. Often, the historical novel comes from a non-fiction narrative I have written. But always – the facts come into context.
