"If you ever plan on being introduced as a speaker, web writer, or otherwise need a line or two to describe yourself and your career, you'll need a bio. Career writer Marci Alboher offers tips and great examples. Alboher notes that bios shouldn't be short resumes, and should never be outright boring...She digs novelist Laura Zigman's example of a human-sounding bio line that gets the job done: 'Laura Zigman grew up in Newton, Massachusetts (where she felt she never quite fit in), and graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst (where she didn't fit in either) and the Radcliffe Publishing Procedures Course (where she finally started to feel like she fit in).'"
