Genre Clarification: Historical Fiction

These books are based in a time period set in the past decades, often against the backdrop of significant (real) historical events.

Historical fiction transports readers to another time and place, either real or imagined. Writing historical fiction requires a balance of research and creativity, and while it often includes real people and events, the genre offers a fiction writer many opportunities to tell a wholly unique story.
