I just finished reading Fablehaven by Brandon Mull.
The part I loved the most? The author's bio, listing every one of his bizarre odd jobs and the fact that he lived in a desert in Chile where he learned to speak Spanish and juggle. His life sounds so intriguing and adventurous.

Sarah Pete lives with her husband and two ninja cats in Florida.

Such a quiet little line.
I mean there are options for spicing my bio up, I suppose.
  • Sarah Pete has worked as a hostess, a telemarketer, a church secretary, a store clerk at a theme park, a librarian, a first grade teacher, and will soon be a middle school English teacher and one of those faces in the H.R. department of a major agriculture company. 
  • She aided in the construction of a new church building in Nicaragua, has traveled to China from which she brought home new siblings, was a conversation partner for English classes in Tokyo, Japan, and lived three months in London where she reveled in the halls of greats and explored the isle of Great Britain to be lost numerous times, take fabulous pictures, be attacked by all manner of waterfowl, and then trapped and hounded in a night club among far more interesting adventures. 
  • She despises pickles and mustard and is in cahoots with peanut butter. (Sh! Don't tell!)
  • She believes zombies stalk her in the shower and cockroaches are demons from the cracks of hell who are solidly bent on her demise. It's the antennas. They're wicked. 
  • She is of the rare female persuasion who finds no woo-ful glamor in Jane Austen.
  • No matter how hard she tries, she cannot outwit the hubs nor one-up his comebacks. Fail. 
  • Reading Tolkien and Lewis changed her life. 
  • She aspires to be a famous author and herd sheep in New Zealand, possibly near Hobbiton, seeking out fabulous adventures and a peaceful life with a great deal of tea.
  • And peanut butter.

What would your bio say?


  1. I like reading the BIO in books.
    Actually, my favorite kind of books are bio's, so that seems fitting. Yours is lovely. :)

  2. I love this! Especially the part about where you've been and what you've done =]

  3. Oh my goodness, I'm absolutely terrible at self-promotion. Writing my bio is basically painful. I LOVE your points though - absolutely fabulous :)

  4. I love this! So cute.

    I am a middle school English teacher too. : )




Good morning, Starshine! The Earth says, "Hello!"
