I like the fact that most of Stephen King’s author photos include him wearing a t-shirt and sometimes a leather jacket. They don’t always shows his pants, but I assume they are jeans except for the one photo I saw with him in a tux. He is a good example of what the author business is really about. It is about the writer being a good writer, and I am aspiring to that. It doesn’t matter that my hair can’t be symmetrical!
Seriously, I have no business wearing a power suit for my author photos. It is just not me. I wore those briefly as a retail manager in the 1990s, at a time when I could still wear heels and pantyhose didn’t make me feel claustrophobic. I also had a better waistline. Twenty years later, sciatica sometimes bites (as well as robbing me of comfortable sleep), and I am not built like I used to be. I also believe, in all my earned wisdom, that I deserve to be comfortable. So, here are my most current author photos. Sarah at Pace Photography did a great job, and we went to shadier spots when the sunlight and greenery made my eyes water; that’s also when we decided on some cool looks or fun shots. We battled the eye bags and puffiness as well as my allergies. The right lighting was everything. Her pricing was quite reasonable! This is who I am now. My author photos were last taken in 2016; my hair was darker and longer and I look a bit different now. Time to show the world, this is who I am, please read my book! 🙂

Your new photos are great! I saw them on Instagram earlier this week. You look very happy, and natural, not an easy accomplishment!
Aw, thank you!
