My 9-year-old granddaughter called me last week to help her write a bio for an art exhibit she's to be featured in next month. Wow! Art exhibit at nine! What talent and she certainly didn't get it from this side of the family tree.
But a bio? We discussed what should go in it: her name, age (relevant in this case), where she goes to school, who her art teacher is, and what else she enjoys doing. She wrote a lovely one and I gave it the grandmother stamp of approval.
But then I thought: I need a new bio for my books and the websites which sell them. There would be my name, no age since it's not relevant, basically where I live if it pertains to what I write (it does), how I've learned my craft (experience and professional writing organizations) and what else I enjoy doing.
I need to get busy and will post my new bio as soon as I sort it out and get my granddaughter's stamp of approval.
