One thought on “Finding Biographical Information on an Author

  1. Hi Asclibrary,
    I was wondering on a similar note,, ‘Neurolinguistics’ helps you to replicate past behaviours which were successful, and the behaviours of other people who are successful in your chosen field. For an aspiring writer a good way of upping your game is to find a model of excellence- a writer you admire and want to be like.
