This week we’re talking about what our bio would say if we were to be a presenter at a conference. I’m sure I would never be a presenter. I don’t speak well in public anymore. Once upon a time I loved getting up and doing speeches. I thrived being on a stage in a play. I would talk to strangers all the time. Now, not so much. I still love acting, I still enjoy a good monologue but I don’t care for people looking at me. If I could give a presentation over the phone that would be great. So I have never really thought about what my bio would say should something like this ever happen.
I don’t have any degrees. I have never excelled in a profession. I doubt that anyone would care that I am an excellent janitor. So I suppose my bio would be short. Perhaps something like this.
Angela Schroeder was born and raised in an Iowa river town. One of six siblings; one having passed away as a baby, and an extremely large amount of first cousins she never lacked for a playmate. Though often she found herself creating stories and acting them out. At an early age she discovered that the written word could transport you to a different time and place. It was then that she knew she was meant to create new worlds for people. Through all the trials of life she never stopped writing.
It was once she was a single mother, raising three young children on her own that she finally decided to try to publish. Now with books ranging from Christian contemporary romance, to young adult sci-fi and fantasy, as well as children’s picture books she hopes to be able to help others the way that her favorite authors once helped her.
