Writing an author bio was an absolute nightmare. I did my typical procrastination routine until the last minute… and I came up with diddly squat! Talking about myself and my life is usually easy for me. Talking about myself in the third person is waaaay outside my comfort zone. So I agonized over it, and began to seriously worry that I wouldn’t come up with anything even remotely acceptable.
Then my beloved Piper came to my rescue. My poor sweetheart was sick and miserable, but she managed to leave a cute comment saying, jokingly, “I’ve got you covered.” Ha! Her messing around bio had me bawling my head off. Because it showed how well she knew me, knew what was important to me, knew what I’d be cool with sharing, and made me sound sooo much more interesting than I actually am.
“Jayden Brooks is a pretty cool chick. Just ask her friends. She’s a woman of great mystery and suspense, but she can’t tell a lie without confessing. She’s fond of gingers, tea, and tales of hot men falling in love with each other—not necessarily in that order. She lives in the suburbs of Chicago with her family, a golden retriever who goes by the name of Mickey, and a cat who wandered in one day and never left. More than anything, she believes that love is love, and everybody deserves a chance at a happily ever after.”
With Piper’s blessing–I copied, pasted and sent that sucker. ❤
