So, the 5th question is “There are cases of non-fiction books being fabricated with false and misleading information. How much truth should a non-fiction book hold?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

In my case all information had to be checked and certified as correct information.

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis

If the nonfiction book is intended as an instruction manual or guide, it should be 100% accurate and true.

3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

For me I should say 100℅ of truth, it’s either you keep it real or it’s not.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

A nonfiction book ought to contain the whole truth and be devoid of propaganda.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

I have a strict rule that a non-fiction book becomes fiction the first time a false, or fabricated, element is deliberately introduced and portrayed as real and true. This does not mean one can’t do role playing scenarios or give hypotheticals. But, apart from these exceptions, it must be true always to be non-fiction.

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

If it’s a non-fiction or memoir book, it absolutely must be factual. It’s not uncommon for an author to use creative non-fiction, for instance, in memoir, when we recall an exact detail – example, maybe it wasn’t a bright, sunny day or perhaps the red dress was really green although we remember it as red, the description of one of the character’s jobs has been changed to protect identity. These examples stated are just a few to demonstrate how truth may be altered, as memories are as the storyteller remembers something. And as far as changing names and occupations of characters goes, it is to protect identity and should be declared in the front matter of the book as a disclaimer. This is all acceptable for writing non-fiction – making up events and characters is not.


7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

You can always incorporate some fictional aspects and stories into a non-fiction book if that is required to drive a point home or explain things better. If you are advocating for authenticity and realism in your books then I highly recommend keeping the entire content real and true.

It should all be accurate to the best of the author’s knowledge, especially if it’s going to be a memoir. We as authors have an awesome responsibility to be true to the truth.

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

As a writer of non-fiction book the truth got to be told with total honesty.


10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

It must be full off truth. I just changed some of the names in my book

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

I feel the truth should be told regardless of how the story is. Just as pure as fire can be so should the truth. certain people feel the truth should be kept a secret but on the truth will set you free inn ay and every situation.

12) Author #12) Steve Wilson

So, the 4th question is “Have you felt called in some way to write a book on a given topic?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

My books are purely generated by by own choice

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis

Before I wrote my first book, I felt called to become a book author. I’m so glad I decided to go for it!

3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

Yes, the title of my book was an instruction from God that I should write the book titled ” Triumph In The Midst Of Adversity” in 2007 at a time it seems my walls were crumbling. My twin daughters were going in and out of the hospital with doctors making the situation worse.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

The answer depends on who does the calling. Yes, I have written publications to satisfy the need I saw.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

Yes, in all three of my books, I felt a great need to write them. We arrest over 2.2 million students a year for innocuous offenses no adult would ever be charged with. So, my Restorative Justice books were intended to interrupt the school-to-prison pipeline. Then, my archetype and allegory resource book was written to help my fellow writers.

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

I’m not sure about a calling. But I can say with certainty that when I get an idea about something, I’m sure to write or talk about it in some method, whether it be by a new book or writing on my blog. If I learn something new, I feel compelled to share with others.


7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

Both my books were born out of a strong inner calling to share my life experiences as a way to inspire people to choose something greater in their own lives.

I have felt called to write inspirational books and poetry and books about God since early childhood.

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

Yes I was challenged in a very strong way to write this recent title book After Windrush Scandal: British Government Broken International Law in Shocking History Revelations relating to my background of studying International Law.


10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

The Lord layed it on my heart, to speak about my life

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

After praying to God about my life thanksgiving 2014 did I feel He answered my prayers regarding Him using me for His purpose but my soul sake. I was at the lowest part in my life and after praying I felt the need to pursue my dream I dreamed in August 2010. Yes. Most of my books are based on what I experienced in life from my perspectives.

12) Author #12) Steve Wilson

Yes.

Hello everyone! It’s time to reveal the answers for all 12 questions answered by 12 author participants in the June Group Author Interview, in the 12 genres, 12 authors, 12 months and 12 questions series! The support from Non-Fiction/Memoirs/Biographies authors was amazing as we have 12 authors participating in this group author interview.

Some of our group author participants are also being interviewed through Author Live Chat with Fans session! Click here to book a session for yourself!

So, the 3rd question is “Have you written anything based on your life experiences?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

The book contain many references to real life experiences

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis

Yes, all of my books are based on the lessons I learned as an author or college instructor.

3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

Yes the entire book ” Triumph In The Midst Of Adversity” was written based on my life experience.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

I have published hundreds of articles that portray my experiences on my website. Each article focuses on a particular experience in childhood, teenage years, early adulthood, or adulthood. Some of the publications were in response to popular assertions that such experiences could not be real.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

Yes, all of my writing is based on my life experiences and knowledge. Being a Restorative Justice practitioner, my first two books were about Restorative Justice in the school system. These books were Unbroken Circles for Schools: Restoring Schools One Conflict at a Time and Unbroken Circles for Schools: Training Scenarios. Being a culturalist, and award-winning author, I do a number of specialty edits based on culture, character archetype, and character allegory. A good number of stories I edited were just horrid. The writers had no clue what allegory their character’s archetype was imparting, the culture of the characters, etc. So, that is when I wrote my most recent book, A Quick Guide to Archetypes & Allegory.

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

All my books are written based on my own life experiences. My books cover topics such as: growing up as an emotionally neglected child, living with a narcissistic mother, finding forgiveness, menopause humor, growing my self-esteem, travel observations, and how I kept a marriage going strong despite all the curveballs along the way.


7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

Yes, everything in my books is based on my own experiences in life. It is real to the core!

Because I don’t have a fiction imagination , all my writings are based on the objective realities in my own life, even my poetry books, and the many hard lessons I’ve learned throughout my long life, I’ve seen a lot of the world’s history go by and have learned a lot of hard lessons based on my own mistakes. I am a survivor of intense childhood trauma, sexual assault and serious mental illness. But I am just a regular person who had to navigate a rather callous mental health system alone and still succeeded in gaining good health, and I think it’s a story worth sharing.

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

Yes I have written various events on my life experiences by keeping a dairy.


10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

Yes, this is my autobiography.

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

Yes. Most of my books are based on what I experienced in life from my perspectives.

12) Author #12) Steve Wilson

Yes.

Hello everyone! It’s time to reveal the answers for all 12 questions answered by 12 author participants in the June Group Author Interview, in the 12 genres, 12 authors, 12 months and 12 questions series! The support from Non-Fiction/Memoirs/Biographies authors was amazing as we have 12 authors participating in this group author interview.

So, the 2nd question is “What is the message you aim to deliver from the non-fiction book(s) you wrote?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

We must all work together to stop the degradation of our planet

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis

I try to inspire my readers and give them the tools they need to success as an author or college instructor.

3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

To send the message that no matter how difficult your situation may be you can indeed live a triumphant life if you have the key strategies to handle adversity.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

The nonfiction books I authored convey a simple message: Be neutral and the truth becomes clear.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

In my latest book, A Quick Guide to Archetypes & Allegory, I seek to assist fiction writers in crafting better stories with more relatable characters. Too few authors worry about their fellow writer. It is my goal for the book to be a base resource for the next generation of award-winning authors and script writers.

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

All my books hold messages in them. I share my stories on various topics on life experiences so that others who relate can learn how I overcame my own obstacles, giving them hope that there is always a way for resolution if we first identify and admit our shortcomings.


7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

My first book is about choosing to be more vulnerable and authentic. I wanted people to know that vulnerability is a great source of strength and embracing it can change your life remarkably! In our society, vulnerability is considered a weakness and this is the myth I wanted to bust through the book. My second book is about silence and solitude. In this current technology and social media dominated world, we have lost the art of spending quiet time in solitude. Through this book I want to invite people to get off being busy and rushing through their lives and instead embrace moments of mindfulness and silence.

I am not trying to establish a second career as a writer here at my advanced age, but I am striving to build a legacy of fine inspirational literature for posterity and to give people who are in distress everywhere some hope for a better future,

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

The message I aim to deliver from the non-fiction books that I wrote must be told on a very accurate account relating onto the subjects.


10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

To be inspired. To never give up on your dreams.

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

My life and how my mom raised me set the roots to wanting to write my book. I felt I needed to be heard for the ones who have a similar paths as me.

12) Author #12) Steve Wilson

To Help Build Self-Character

June Non-Fiction/Memoirs/Biographies Author Interview Answer #1 “An author could easily write a fiction book out of some true events to keep things confidential. But you chose to write a non-fiction book. What encouraged you?”

June Non-Fiction/Memoirs/Biographies Author Interview

Hello everyone! It’s time to reveal the answers for all 12 questions answered by 12 author participants in the June Group Author Interview, in the 12 genres, 12 authors, 12 months and 12 questions series! The support from Non-Fiction/Memoirs/Biographies authors was amazing as we have 12 authors participating in this group author interview.

Some of our group author participants are also being interviewed through Author Live Chat with Fans session! Click here to book a session for yourself!

So, the 1st question is “An author could easily write a fiction book out of some true events to keep things confidential. But you chose to write a non-fiction book. What encouraged you?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

My topic is a broad investigation of environmental issues. This cannot be fiction.

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis

I write nonfiction books to help my fellow authors and college instructors. To me, writing nonfiction is just another form of teaching and I love teaching others (I teach a night class at the local college as a part-time job)!

3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

The fact that my opening up to share my story will connect more to my readers and also believe that they can also overcome their life hurdles just the way I did.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

The nonfiction books I have authored have been spurred by the prominence of misinformation and disinformation on the topics. The nonfiction books I authored were thoroughly researched, objective, and provided hitherto uncommon knowledge on the topics.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

Fiction authors tend to write about how things could, or should, be. I like to tell how things truly are. For me, non-fiction can sometimes be wilder than fiction. Some of the things I write about, most people would never believe it if I had written it as fiction.

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

I’ve always been a truth teller and a sharer of stories of my observations. When I wrote my first book, it was from a compilation of years of journaling about my life growing up with a narcissistic mother. Putting that book together became like a cathartic release. From that book forward, I wanted to continue talking about real life situations I encountered and overcame, wanting to share my experiences in hopes that others may be enlightened. I chose not to disguise my stories in fiction, but to share my truth openly.


7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

I chose to write non-fiction over fiction because it helped me keep the protagonist/character very real. I felt this is very essential, especially in the self-help genre as real-life characters can truly inspire and motivate the readers to bring in changes into their own lives. I wanted my readers to think – “If she can do it, I can do it too”

I write nonfiction books because I truly believe that truth is stranger than fiction, and my educational background is in both journalism and English literature which is perfect training for a nonfiction writer. But I do go to great lengths to protect the reputations of people who are still living, often by changing their names or by not using a last name.

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

I chose to write a non-fiction book due to my past experience as a former anti-apartheid activist and an experienced anti-racist campaigner also got a background in International Law as a student in my fondest memory at Middlesex University had the unique opportunity to spend a semester abroad at the University of Cape Town in South Africa during the Academic Year of 1997/1998.


10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

I wanted to speak about my life. Let people know, things can change.

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

My life and how my mom raised me set the roots to wanting to write my book. I felt I needed to be heard for the ones who have a similar paths as me.

12) Author #12) Steve Wilson

Didn’t want people to make the same mistakes I did.
