HAAO: Poll!

My author bio needs a reboot, I think.

Here are some options (including the current bio), plus a poll. Which do you like best?

Bio Number 1 (Current)

Carolyn Jewel is an award winning author who’s been writing stories ever since she could scribble. Now that she’s grown up (mostly) she writes historical and paranormal romance because she loves history and imagining the lives of people who lived in years past, and because she’s fascinated by the loves and travails of the not-exactly-human in any time period.

Bio Number 2

Carolyn Jewel writes novels about love. You should read them if you like books about falling in love.

Bio Number 3

Carolyn Jewel writes historical and paranormal romance. She has a very dusty car, a Master’s degree in English, three cats and a dog. Also a son. She wears glasses, reads a lot of books and loves Bollywood movies.

    I actually love #2, but it doesn’t really qualify as a bio. So I voted for number 3. That one’s pretty good, too.

    Carolyn Jewel is an award winning author of historical and paranormal romance. She loves combing the records of history and myth, fascinated by the loves and travails of the human and not-precisely-human of different eras. An avid fan of fine chocolate, Bollywood films, and heroism in all forms, Carolyn …[okay, I lost steam here].

  3. For inspiration, here’s this from twitter’s @VictoriaDahl:

    “Carolyn Jewel was born on a moonless night. That darkness was seared into her soul…”

    Robin, I think I can end yours with Victoria’s.

    Phyl, thanks! I definitely need something less boring than what I have now and I am not opposed to short at all.

  4. Robin says:

    Yes, I think you can! ;D

  5. SonomaLass says:

    I’m particularly fond of “Also a son.”

    I like #1 the best, but #3 has some nice things written about you that could be included, such as, your degree, dusty car, love of reading and Bollywood.
