Yesterday I got an email. It started out with Dear Authors…….and I was one of them!
Even better, the email requested my bio. Yes, that’s right. MY BIO. Things about me that people will read. In a BOOK.
My hands trembled as I tried to compose myself enough to compose a bio. You see, this is the first time I ever had to write a bio. I didn’t know what to write. I didn’t want to sound lame and be all like “Janet Heath is a wonderful woman and the best writer in the world and now you all know it too!” But I didn’t want to sound pathetic either like “Janet Heath still can’t believe she is in this book because who would want to read anything she wrote?” So I tried to write something about myself that would show my love of reading and writing. Hopefully I succeeded. My editor liked it, so I guess it wasn’t too lame.
My dream is coming true. I am about to become a published author. Pinch me now.
