Now that all my home computers offer me the ability to take photos of myself, I can see the way I really look any time I want.
But that's not me, I want to protest! I'm younger! And not so flushed! And where did that wrinkle come from? And who took my eyes and replaced them with tiny raisins?
Then again I don't want to be like a famous mystery author I'm acquainted with. Her author photo is probably 20 years and 40 pounds ago.
This is the author photo I've used for a couple of years. My husband took it. The blue background is actually a school. I'm thinking I want a new one.
I really like this snapshot someone took of me at an event in May. I just emailed her to see if she could send it to me - I snagged this off Facebook and it's a fairly small resolution.
If all else fails, I could use this photo from the FBI gun range. That was the first time I had ever shot a gun. I wouldn't recommend having your first time be with a submachine gun firing real ammo. However, maybe I could use the photo to intimidate anyone who is thinking of dissing my books.
