The third day of the blogger challenge.
Right, writing an author bio. As equally terrifying as my other enemies, the synopsis, the cover letter, the pitch, and all those other things we must submit to agents, in the desperate hope that they’ll like us, and want to read more of our completed manuscripts.
So, having skimmed a variety of websites listed on the prompt page I have reached the following conclusion. Sweet and simple. Very Simple. My bio should not include extraneous information but should be to the point. As a fiction writer, I list relevant qualifications. Hooray! I actually have some, hoorah – very exciting. So, that covers one of the three sentences I should be submitting. My name and genre covers another, excellent. Right, how to finish this off? How to show some personality? I have chosen to put in some selective information about my hobbies and interests, and something that makes me ‘more human’ at the last. I hope that it’s also vaguely amusing.
Here we go.

What do you think? Is this worthy of submission?
