A little fun pieces together other author's bios to create my own - Bwha ha ha!

I know my About Dorlana page on my website www.dorlanavann.me, lacks personal. Next to the full synopsis, I find it the most challenging thing to write. As a fiction writer, I write as other people… daring, confident, mean, manipulative, heroic, characters who are way more entertaining than I am.

However, I do go directly to an author’s bio when I really enjoy their book, and true after my Home Page, it is the most visited page on my site. So I guess at least a few people are curious.

But I don’t think my bio would be much different than most writers’ bios- it almost seems like: you read one, you read them all (Except for that little, tiny NY best seller, etc. detail… ). And to prove this point, (Really just to have a little fun, and because I’m really lost when it comes to writing my own) I have decided to borrow a few lines from some Goodreads “about this author” sections that would work perfect for my bio too. I have put these lines together and “TA-DA!” Here is my bio:

Dorlana Vann is the author of contemporary fantasy novels for kids, teens, and adults. She is the author of the Modern Faerie Tale and describes all her work as “fairy tales in one way or another.” She has been telling stories since before she could write. Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves. Thinking one day about Alice in Wonderland she wrote her favorite short story, “If You Feed a Wolf,” where she just let her imagination go wild.

A life-long reader, Dorlana has always loved mythology and folklore. When she can actually tear herself away from books (either reading or writing them), she enjoys bad reality TV, trying interesting cocktails, and shopping. She’s a self-professed coffee addict. She does not know how to spell… This has not prevented her from writing books.

OK, here are the actual lines taken from these terrific authors:

“author of contemporary fantasy novels for kids, teens, and adults. She is the author of the Modern Faerie Tale “- Holly Black

‘describes all her work as “fairy tales in one way or another.”‘ Erin Morgenstern

“has been telling stories since before she could write. Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves.” Kelley Armstrong

“Thinking one day about Alice in Wonderland…” – Suzanne Collins

“A life-long reader, [inserted my name here] has always loved mythology and folklore. When she can actually tear herself away from books (either reading or writing them), she enjoys bad reality TV, traveling, trying interesting cocktails, and shopping for dresses. She’s a self-professed coffee addict” – Richelle Mead

“She does not know how to spell fudgsicles. This has not prevented her from writing books.” Carrie Jones

 

This was a lot of fun – but in all seriousness, I am working on adding a few more personal facts to my About Dorlana page and promise to use my own words.

Love and Laughter,

Dorlana
