Author bios are the wooooorst

How does this read? its 119 words, which is fine - they asked for 100-150.

Heather is a doctor with several degrees in pirates, all of which are going to waste. She works at an archaeological repository in Ontario, Canada. This may sound cool but is actually regulated at a consistent temperature because it is better for the collections. She is a gamer (the pen-and-paper kind, but often over the internet because it is 2017), a writer, and a knitter. She has previously published fiction in the anthology "High Seas Cthulhu," in addition to a number of academic journal articles about piracy.

As a queer woman, Heather is very excited to see the Cthulhu Mythos continue to evolve by embracing a broader diversity and distancing itself from the racism and misogyny of Lovecraft's original work.

"doctor with several degrees in pirates" sounds odd to me but maybe I'm being picky? "Heather has multiple piratical PhDs, all of which are going to waste"?

This may sound cool but is actually regulated at a consistent temperature because it is better for the collections. - I loved this line too.

Nice and short but with some interesting details, and the last line seems quite graceful to me.
