Author websites. Known for being updated only once every five years. Why does an author have a website? To direct readers to a site that reads "Please see my reading tour from 2007"? 2007 was six years ago. My dream here is that I update this site more than once every five years. It is 2013. A science fiction kind of year. The kind of year where the science fiction of updating your website more than once every five years may well be possible. We can hope.
What I mainly want from an author's website is the ability to cut and paste the author's bio into various projects without emailing the author. To that end, here is my bio in case you need to cut and paste it to include in your projects. Thank you for including me in your projects or for just copying and pasting.
