Hello, My Writing Colleague,
Yay, you’ve written a piece that gets eyeballs on your work, and now you have to write an author’s bio, ugh. We all feel this way when it comes to writing about ourselves (okay, maybe, there’s someone out there with full confidence), for the rest of us, here is how you do it.
You only have a small paragraph to tell people who you are, what you do and where to find you and possibly more of your stuff.
You should have more than one author’s bio. A general one for everything isn’t the best way to serve your reader or your writing career.
Here are a few good examples (me first, of course):
