This has perhaps been covered before but I have some specific questions in regards to magazines asking for a bio as part of a covering letter. I get what a bio is Ė but I suppose I feel a bit weird not having any sales to list and a pretty boring life to boot. What do I fill it with?

I understand itís unlikely Iíll make a sale too, but donít want to fall at the first hurdle by not including one.

Also, I assume I write it in the third person?

Any help would be appreciated.
