Author Bio

It seems that a lot of literary agents want an author bio.  So here is mine (for now):

Ian Cardenas is currently a writer, artist, and teacher in Northern Virginia.  Once a scared kid with no hope for the future due to fears of stepping out of his comfort zone, Ian made great strides growing up to transform into a confident young man who believes he can accomplish anything that he sets his mind to.  Now twenty-six years old, Ian is working toward a Master’s Degree in Special Education and has recently completed his first literary fiction novel, Big Red Yonder.  In the past he published two books, a self-help book called The Rock Star Manifesto and a poetry collection called Nobody Likes You When You’re 23.  However, writing fiction has always been his true passion in life and finishing his first full-length fiction novel is on the top of his list of achievements.  Over the course of the past six years, Ian wrote Big Red Yonder under a number of challenging circumstances including financial instability, over-the-road truck driving, a plethora of hostile environments, health problems, and much more.  Though always remaining positive in the face of adversity,  his novel was at times his only form of solace.  As a result, his writing turned into something larger than mere literature, but rather a life-saving outlet that became filled with the raw emotion and creativity that is Ian Cardenas.

  1. Sometimes people also like to see shorter bio’s, for example, one hundred words or less. You might consider writing a shorter version just in case one is needed.
