I was always under the impression authors of fiction consciously or unconsciously include an autobiographical element while writing their books and this thought of mine was endorsed by some of the authors I happened to meet during the release of their books. Fiction is different from non fiction as it is purely based on the creativity and imagination of the writer but it has to be believable unless you are a JKRowling. But what was not believable or hard to digest was when a writer who launched his fiction recently, when asked whether the protagonist who hated his father (the theme of the book) was based on experience of any one he knew or happened to hear about, flatly denied saying the idea had come purely from his head. I still wonder whether this is possible. I would like to know from my readers.
