I want to write a book involving the life of my father. He's been a political activist during his youth and the events that he narrates are worthy to be recorded.
But I am confused as to what it should be? Like, do I make a biography of his life? What genre should this fall into?
Also, he has turned spiritual in his later years and there's been a series of supernatural events occurring in his life. He has also been fascinated with parapsychology and read a wide variety of books on politics and philosophy.
I want to include all of these elements in my book. But, making it fictional by just changing names will be easier, since it would require less research. I thought about using Google, but not everything is available.
There's been quite a bloody history of the communist party in my state and people faced oppression. He was a youth congress leader and helped people out keeping his own life at risk. All the events are real, but some of them are difficult to put in chronological order.
What should I do? Anyone?
