Deborah-Diane is the “Biographer Bookworm” Contributor on Squidoo

deborahdianeToday we’re happy to introduce you to Deborah-Diane. She’s our “Biographer Bookworm” Contributor on Squidoo.

Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
My favorite way to learn about history is to read about the people who lived it. Whether they are world leaders or ordinary people who were living in extraordinary times, I have found that biographies can be fascinating. Biographies of all types of people, from the historic Queens of Europe to modern day movie stars, all contribute to our understanding of our own lives and the people who have lived before us.

Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
The first biography I remember reading in high school was about Anne Boleyn. I was so fascinated by her story, that I read several more biographies of her. Then, I read about other interesting women, including Zelda Fitzgerald, Hanley Hemingway, and Marie Antoinette. Later, I realized that when I read the Bible I am actually reading a series of biographies of everyone from the Kings to the ordinary citizens who lived in the Middle East over a period of thousands of years. These were real people who probably never realized that people would be reading about their lives hundreds of years later.

Who had the most influence in your life?
Authors have always had a magical influence on me. There is nothing I enjoy more than a well-crafted, well-researched book, whether it is a horror story by Steven King, a historical novel, or even a light-hearted romance. To take words and create a story, evoke an emotion or inspire me to think more deeply … this has always seemed like the highest form of creativity to me.

    I enjoy your biographical view of the Bible reading. I’d not thought of it quite that way. It has been awhile but there was a time when all I read was autobiographies and memoirs. I look forward to you inspiring that reading once more.

    I love non fiction too. You can learn a lot by reading about other people and how they handle different situations in their lives.

    Congratulations on your post! I am currently reading the Nag Hamadi scriptures and have to agree, they are like mini biography’s. Not only do I like reading the scriptures, but the explanations given by the Author telling their point of view, but the research and conclusions that they did scholastically
