Despite what I wrote for my interior cover bio, I do not actually run a taxi service for poodles. I wrote that bio in a fit of whimsy, due to the fact that a member of the family does happen to be a poodle, and she does—more often than not—ride on my back. The joke would probably have made more sense had my original photo been included in the book—which does actually show little Daisy on my back, going for a ride.
I must confess, though, that this was my first bio:
“The author is an extremely hairy individual who believes in going through life with a smile.”
Now, imagine what would have happened had I submitted that and the appropriate picture was not attached?
Yes, I thought so. Which means that everyone should sigh a breath of relief that I have such good impulse control.
