Writing Books/author bio

Question
Hello:
What and where should an "author bio" appear? What if the writer is unpublished and doesn't have published works to include?

Thanks.

Are you in Morocco to research a novel?

Answer
I would add the bio as a single page attachment. But keep it very simple - DO NOT over-sell yourself! Only include material that is important to the subject of the book. For example, where you went to school is not needed unless you have written a book about the education system!

Cheers

Sandy
