If I look at the biography page on authors’ web sites, I’m usually trying to find clues to the way they write and what they write about. It’s useful, too, to form some idea of how much of a life they’ve had.
If it seems to have been pretty stable and predictable, then if they write about a world they can’t have experienced – one that’s dangerous, say, or wildly passionate, or fantastical, and they do it well, you must respect their skill. But most authors’ web sites have Bio Pages generally in the form of a typical CV, and that doesn’t usually give the reader any idea of the story behind the person.
