What to Include in Your About the Author

1. Tout your expertise
If you are the author of a non-fiction book, highlight your expertise. Expertise can be everything from your training and education, to personal experience with a topic. Your expertise is an important selling point. 

2. List your other titles
Let readers know about your other books so they can explore more of your work. 

3. Highlight accolades and affiliations
Include awards and memberships that demonstrate your depth of knowledge in your field, or your experience as a writer. Also consider mentioning organisations that will help fellow members or alumni identify with you.
