I would never say that I write autobiography but I like to say that I write personal stories, because I do cull a lot from my life and from people around me and things that I see, as I imagine most authors do. It gets more difficult with each project because writers look for new aspects of their personality to mine, and usually it’s that first book that is the culmination of a life’s worth of experiences. *** US graphic novelist Stephen Emond at http://writingteennovels.com/2013/02/08/writing-personal-stories-for-teens-by-stephen-emond.
