Non-Fiction Writers

Non-fiction writers are the ones who write stories and books based on real-life facts and information as opposed to fiction. Non-fiction writers cover a wide range of topics ranging from biographies to cookbooks, from history to self-help, from travel to parenting. Non-fiction is a narrative account which presents facts and assertions that are believed by the author to be factual. Writing accurate non-fiction is a job that calls for a high level of responsibility, and writers of non-fiction need to be precise in their research for the facts. Non-fiction writers yield the power to influence their readers with their own interpretation of a real life event and thus often find themselves in the midst of controversies. When Paul R. Ehrlich wrote a book predicting the doom of mankind due to overpopulation in the 1960s he was bitterly criticized though his work became immensely popular. It was the release of a non-fiction book on evolution by Jonathan Wells that set off a fiery debate between creationists and evolutionists. With the sheer influence of their words, there is so much that non-fiction writers can achieve! Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs influenced thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs even as animal activist Peter Singer's Animal Liberation motivated millions around the world to adopt a cruelty-free lifestyle.
