A book about me? HUH?

11 Mar

your lifeSo today’s daily prompt: Ghostwriter says: If you could have any author –living or dead – write your biography, who would you choose? 

The first authors that came to mind were: Shakespeare, Vonnegut, John Steinbeck, Dickens, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Poe, Kerouac, and Hemingway or Faulkner. Or Stephen King, James Patterson, Nicholas Sparks, Jim Butcher, Nora Roberts, Patricia Cornwell, Shel Silverstein, Dr. Suess,  or Anne Rice. So I’ve covered both the living and dead authors I would choose from, as well as some of the classics of literature, and the Bosses of modern fiction. Guess it depends on your genre. So who to chose? Who to choose?

My gut instinct would be to have Patricia Cornwell write it if I’ve been murdered. That way at least I know my murder would be solved. My life has had it’s ups and downs, and a few interesting things have happened, but if I were honest I’d have to say it would probably be a bit boring for the Reader. So the writer would have his/her work cut out for him/her.

My other choice, if I’m going with the whole life story thing, the “Out of tragedy comes hope and…” I would choose Nicholas Sparks, if I wanted detail and story I’d choose Anne Rice…But it all comes back to, no matter how I slice it, my favorite writing styles and authors are Patterson and King. I’d want them to write my biography in collaboration with each other–wouldn’t that be SOMETHING!!!! Yep, that’s what I’m choosing. And they have to include Patricia Cornwell if I’m murdered.

If I could write it myself I would, but I think I’d have too much bias.
