Not long ago i had some new author photos taken.
I never really loved the one I had and I always looked a little stilted and unnatural in them. I'm not the world's most photogenic person but I usually look better in photos that aren't staged. I guess it is a lucky co-incidence the Ford Model Agency never came calling back in the day - I guess, short, freckled red-headed women weren't the big thing back when I was a teen (or ever).
Anyway, my lovely husband, helped me take these. It's always weird to look at yourself in photos but they are I do believe as good as it is going to get.
The truth is I don't want to be one of those authors who have photos taken of them and use that same photo twenty years, five hairstyles and fifteen kilograms later. I have met authors who I would NEVER have recognised from their author photos.
Anyway I hope to revamp my website, newsletter and Facebook page in the new year (Can you believe that's only 11 days away?) and these photos will come in handy.
I actually prefer these one. I guess I look better when I have something else to focus on. Oh yeah and I'm holding my lovely paperbacks which you can get from Amazon
I am a writer of light-hearted contemporary women's fiction.
