Recently I posted my NEW SHORT BIO on this blog HERE
Today, I am posting a more expanded, 173-word Bio..
Keeping our BIO up-to-date is important because we need to be prepared when an editor asks us for a bio for a project that will be published. Creating one that is about 100 words is good for the SHORT BIO. And, a longer one, around 200 or less words, is good to have on hand also.
