What is autofiction? I wrote an answer to this question in a post titled "Writing Lies & Other Truths." Here's an excerpt:
There's something delightfully freeing about this unshackled category. No longer bound to the hunt-for-facts-to-a-fault memoir label or the "world that must encompass the objective and the subjective" of the novel, as literary critique Jonathan Gibbs points out, the auto fiction writer discharges herself of both duties.

She can borrow from the novel structure as she pleases. She can retain bunches of realistic descriptions; keep her grip on a main conflict; hang on to a plot. Then she can spill her story in an indulgently subjective way, without sparing even a paragraph for anyone else's point of view. There isn't a single person in her rearview writing mirror.
 

You're Invited to All Things YA Thriller 

Young Adult Thriller Conference streamed live to YouTube this Friday and Saturday, July 10 and 11. Join twenty-four young adult YA authors. I'll be moderating a panel on diversity in YA. I would be delighted for you to take part. Feel free to share your feedback.
