Author Publicity always includes a Biography, brief or otherwise, but should give a fairly exact description of the person being promoted.
Mary Deal is an award-winning multi-genre author of suspense thrillers, a short story collection, and nonfiction self-help books. Her career began when she was rear-ended in a car accident which side-lined her from regular work. Not being able to move around much, she began to write. She had always written notes about anything that meant something to her. Among the life-time of notes were found clues to plots for stories. Ordinary events trigger plots for stories and all she can do is make notes till she can finally flesh out the story. She has received some of her plots through dreams. She woke one morning with Egyptian scenes parading through her mind. Startled by the foreign spectacle, she lay quietly watching. Only when a bizarre event appeared, which fully woke her, did she realize she had the ending scene of a new story; the ultimate title, The Ka.
Mary’s first feature screenplay, Sea Storm, was nominated into the Semi-Finals in a Moondance International Film Festival competition.
One of Mary’s many short stories, The Last Thing I Do, appeared in the anthology, Freckles to Wrinkles, by Silver Boomer Books, and was nominated for the coveted Pushcart Prize.
A native of Walnut Grove, California in the Sacramento River Delta, Mary Deal has lived in England, the Caribbean, the Hawaiian Islands, and presently resides in Scottsdale, Arizona.

These are but a few of the many sites she visits for author promotion or author publicity. While she cannot frequent some of them regularly, keeping in touch remains great author publicity. (This site doesn't allow for many, many outbound links on any particular page, so I've placed the URLs to each page for you to copy and paste.)
