Writing Quote: Don't Write a Biography of a Person Whose Life Is Not a Good Story

How to begin? I had always shuddered at biographies that began, "It was a clear, cold morning in mid-December 1830, when the cry of a newborn baby broke the winter stillness." And once you begin, how to tell the story of a life that had no story?

Richard B. Sewall in Extra Ordinary Lives, edited by William Zinsser, 1986

We can get bio writing service from online. Therefore biography should not be like this.
