Authors have to provide bios for a variety of features: some long, some short, some serious, some funny, etc. I've written dozens of different versions of mine.
I've been reading the back issues of magazines I have lying around the house. In issue 61 of The Mindfulness Bell, I find this line in the author bio of Brother Chan Phap Nguyen: "He enjoys drinking tea and lying on a hammock."
is one of my favorite bio lines ever, especially since it follows an
otherwise serious and straightforward recitation of biographical facts.
I've certainly read more overtly hilarious bios, but I just like the
gentle simplicity of it. Especially since bios often devolve into a long
list of awards and accomplishments.
Another bio line I'm partial to is this one from Jon Gibbs:
"When he's not chasing around after his three children, he can usually
be found hunched over the computer in his basement office. One day he
hopes to figure out how to switch it on."
