Real People, Real Stories

Fri, 01/08/2021 - 8:53am -- SEgan

If you have shied away from biographies, autobiographies and memoirs for fear of them being too dry, we sympathize. It is a genre that is tough to measure up to thrills of reading a chilling thriller or mystery or even a historical fiction (or science fiction/ fantasy) that can carry you away to a different world. But biographies, autobiographies and memoirs can bring history to life and tell a story that is both compelling and dynamic.
