Many authors have websites devoted to their lives and work, which include biographical information. These websites include varying amounts of biographical information, from basic details of the author's life to full biographies of the authors and their work.
Book publisher websites also provide biographical information about the authors that they publish, and links to author websites. For more detailed information about an author's life, a person can search for biographies written about the author or an autobiography written by the author. Full-length biographies and autobiographies provide the greatest amount of detail about an author's life. Websites such as Biography.com and Poetryfoundation.org contain biographical information about many writers.
