History is history, but historical fiction? That’s one kind of creative writing we can’t get enough of!
Historical fiction takes events, people, and places that really existed and weaves a story around them, embellishing the past here and there to tell a tale about the way we were, or at least, the way we might have been. It takes an inventive author (and a lot of research) to remodel the past and construct a story within the real history of our world. These authors have done it brilliantly!
