    Kayelle,

    The quotes are the names of the magazines where my work can be seen.

    I had to pull something together a few hours after posting this bio here for a magazine requesting my bio. And I came up with the following. (the limit was 100 words) I think it has a better punch than the original one I posted.

    Cher Green, intrigued by the written word, has made it a life goal to bring her stories to life and share them with others. Inspired by such writers as Stephen King, V. Cv. Andrews, and Dean Koontz, she strives to touch the lives of her readers with her stories. After years of learning the craft, she writes in many genres, spanning from horror, suspense, and romance. Her romance novella, Escape to Love, debuted in June of 2011. Cher Green also has a variety of short stories published with various magazines.

    I agree. Much stronger! In a different bio, you could use the names of the magazines and make it clearer by mentioning your work appeared in the magazines x,y,z. They are clever titles, that's certain.

    You might consider rewording your first sentence to eliminate one life. I highlighted the two in red to help you see them. "...life goal to bring her stories to life..."

    Btw, is that supposed to be V.C. Andrews?

    Amazing how requests for a bio can pop out of the woodwork. I needed a new one this week for a convention where I'll be a panelist this fall.

    Typos are a the bane of an author's existence, and we make some doozies! I once submitted a short bio where I called myself other Kayelle Allen instead of author. Spell check liked it just fine.
