Historical Fiction - A Definition

One definition of Historical Fiction is as follows: “Historical fiction presents a story set in the past, often during a significant time period. In historical fiction, the time period is an important part of the setting and often of the story itself. Historical fiction may include fictional characters, well-known historical figures or a mixture of the two.” In each book, whether or not it is a novel, a children’s book or a short story, there are elements of history inter-woven with that of fiction.

New Stories to Consider!

New stories, new ideas and new places are all part of the creative process. This picture is of one of those places that could be the setting of a new story couched in historical facts and characters. Can you guess where this might be? And if so, the period of time such a story might take place?
