== A person who is not notable who has a Wikipedia entry ==
The person in question is Diana Raab. She had a book published long ago that sold well enough. Since then, she has self-published books of poetry and memoir. She paid someone to create a Wikipedia entry on her. She won awards given for self-published books. She is a donor to UC Santa Barbara and therefore is allowed to give a memoir workshop. The only thing notable about Raab is that she has bought her way into appearing to be a respected writer when in truth she is a hack who couldn't pass a grammar, punctuation, and spelling test. How do we get this biography of a living person taken down? It's an insult to the good writers out there.
A person is presumed to be notable if he or she has received significant coverage in reliable secondary sources that are independent of the subject.
Notability criteria may need to be met for a person to be included in a stand alone list article.
