Yesterday marked a milestone in my professional writing career, as I was encouraged to write my first-ever bio. Now, for anyone out there who’s ever been asked to write something about themselves in the third person, you’ll know how difficult it is to be objective… so I just gave up and went for “over-the-top”. The bio should be posted in this week’s Silent Talkie (most likely in the ‘About‘ section).

Just as a bit of a teaser (and a note to any would-be future Dave Duncan biographers out there) I really like to call myself an idiot savant. It’s kind of a catch-all phrase. I mean, it can’t really be argued that I’m a genius… if you DO try to argue it with me, I’ll just stick my fingers in my ears and scream “I CAN’T HEAR YOU, I CAN’T HEAR YOU” over and over until you give up and walk away. That’s the idiot part.

Writing biographies of other people is WAY easier. To be honest, I’m really hoping one of my close friends hits the big-time somehow. That way, I can approach them to be their official biographer. It’s a pretty sweet situation, actually. If they agree, I get to be a ‘hanger on’ in their wild ride to celebrity (all-expenses paid, of course) and if they disagree, well… unauthorized biographies sell like hotcakes… especially the ones filled with venomous lies like mine would be. Do you hear that, friends of mine?!? DON’T FREEZE ME OUT!

Well, now that I’ve made all the not-so-thinly veiled threats I should make today, I’m off to do some research on all of you.
