About the Author?

I need to post an author bio on Smashwords, both on my profile page and at the end of Butterflies.  I’ve been trying to figure out what to share (remember, I go by a pseudonym and don’t want to reveal my secret identity) and I think I have it.  Would you tell me if this seems like enough/too much/just the right amount of information?  My blog, Facebook page, and Smashwords page will all be listed separately.

Leigh Townsend lives in Houston, TX with a whippet-mix dog and an African grey parrot, both of which were rescued.  Her personal library consists mainly of fantasy and science-related non-fiction, as well as the last decade of National Geographic.  She is a self-proclaimed “bird nerd” who has traveled all over Texas, to many corners of the United States, and even to Panama in her quest to see new birds. (Her life list currently stands at 767 species.)  This is her first full-length novel, with more to come!

Thanks in advance for your feedback!!

    Sounds good. I looked at the bios of a couple of authors for comparison and it seems to be the right amount of informaton.

    I like it. Will you be updating it with each novel you publish? I’m just thinking if your life list number changes, or you move, or whatever… OR your secret identity can move, but author-self can stay there!

      I can update it – I’ve seen a couple authors whose bios are different in the beginning of a series than in the end. 🙂
      The version for Smashwords just says something about one novel and several short stories in the last sentence.
