Real People in Novels

Sometimes considered a sub-genre of historical fiction, biographical novels provide fictional and often highly imaginative accounts of the lives or activities of actual people. Or, real people may also appear as characters in mysteries, romances, fantasies and other novels. Biographical novels can offer unique insights into the everyday lives of famous or important people. The very best stories are from real life.
