Even though Wikipedia is often criticized for the fact that it is user created. It can be a powerful tool for authors.
Although Wikipedia asks that you Don’t Write it Yourself you can have friends write one for you thus allowing for an ‘inside’ view into the authors life, personality and history.
Wikipedia also allows individuals to edit documents giving authors at least some control over the information provided.
These are just two examples of Wikipedia pages so that you can see how they look and what information is usually provided:
- Storm Constantine: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storm_Constantine
- Tanith Lee: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanith_Lee
