Hi, I believe the common thread -- among older readers -- is their life's story. It's said that "truth is stranger then fiction." So be it -- I strongly suggest you either write of your own experiences -- as I do -- if, of course, they are exciting enough to hold your readers attention -- or, you might consult with any number of family members, or friends asking if they'll allow you to interview them for interesting , personal accounts you can write as a "story", for publication. However, be certain not to inadvertently "plagiarize" them. In lieu of your own stories, the search for one could be a bit daunting, but worth the effort in the long run. Good hunting!
