Have you ever been put off an author’s books after reading a biography of them? Or the reverse – a biography has made you love an author more?
Well, I don't actively read any author's biography, unless it was for a book report back in school. Nowadays, of course, you could keep in touch with the authors themselves by reading their blogs or following them on Twitter or other social media site.
I haven't been affected by what biographies say about the author. In fact, I'd like to think that perhaps it might influence me to read his/her work more. In the end, it's the work itself that either turns me away or entices me, though it is nice to learn more about your favorite author and relate to them in a more personal level.
