Do you know things about your favourite author(s)? Personal, quirky, funny things? These snippets come out because readers want to know about the writer. What makes them tick. Interesting facts. Personality sells books because readers relate to the author and feel as if they know them personally.
You don’t have to reveal your entire personal life, but do give some clues as the the person behind the work.

These might be used as a sidebar to an article, or in a blog post. Or a journalist might pluck one or two fun facts and insert them into a story. Consider facts from your childhood, a “secret” you never told anyone, how you cared for your junk of a first car, an accomplishment that has nothing to do with your book, or a bad mistake that taught you a life lesson.
