Author about page

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering what everyone would like to see on a website for the author about page. What kinds of things would you like to know/read about, and what types of things do you find irritating/disappointing to read on these pages?

No, seriously speaking though, as much as you dread it, you've got to have a picture.

Yes, I know. Now to actually take one.

On mine that I just finished, I wrote about how I started writing and a little bit about some of my titles. I integrated info on my US state and faith into this. :)

A little bit about your background, and what you hope to accomplish as a writer.

Any specific ideas? I want something more than the generic, boring, everyone talks about that, stuff. 

 

Aw! I read yours, @PenName. Very nice start!

See, Sarah- I told you!!

Y'all like me, and you know it! 😁 

 

But seriously, if we take the box or "supposed to" and chuck it over the hill, maybe light it on fire, what else would you guys like to hear about?

Well, how about the facts of your life?  You're a mother, a caregiver (that should play heavily into it) you suffer from severe dyslexia (so forgive in advance any spelling errors), you've had a hard life but your struggling to make the best of it and how writing is your dream come true.  And a statement about your faith- you can't forget that!

Yes. What kinds of things, outside of the conventional stuff, would everyone like to see/read about?

What's your favorite color, favorite food, etc. . .just kidding.

Actually, I kinda like it. A bullet point random facts about me section could be fun.
