Notes from Writing the Blockbuster Novel by Albert Zuckerman.

Backstory:
In outline for yourself create your story from its initiating crucial event, going back as far in time as seems interesting or helpful. Give your main characters life histories that set out how and why they have become what they are. Establish clearly the main actions that have gone on between these characters. Decide at what point in their lives the novel will begin, how much of the backstory, if any, will be dramatised in the novel and where and how it will be presented – author narration, characters memory, dramatic flashback or a combination.
