So maybe I need a new author photo

So, true confession: that picture of me with the short hair that’s on my website and most online bios (including my Red Room page)? It’s just a little… well, outdated.

Oh, fine. It was taken in 2005, when I had fewer crow’s feet and fewer pounds and fewer gray hairs.  Six years on, I’m over the hill of 40, climbing my way toward 50, and realizing that maybe it’s time for a new picture.

Here’s another way it doesn’t reflect reality: For some reason known only to my subconscious mind, I’ve been letting my hair grow. Maybe it’s just because I still have all my hair that I’m doing it. However, the state of it on any given morning can be… interesting:

Bad hair morning

Needless to say, I’ll give it a brush before I smile for the camera.

Did this ‘do make you laugh? Tell me about it here or over on….

    • Thanks, hon! Another true confession: I find myself turning my head more lately to see if the hair moves. One of these days I’m going to put my eye out, I’m sure. Also, I’m just going to be glad when it’s long enough to pull back into a ponytail on days when it’s hotter than the hinges of Hell outside….
