What is a biography?

It is an account of a person's life written by someone else. It should not be confused with an autobiography, which is a person's own account of their life, written by him or her.

To write a good biography, you'll need to take notes about the person you are writing about. This means reading a few books about the person. You'll need information on the following:

Early life
