Mary Anne will discuss the steps to publishing a short story, essay or novel. In addition to covering market listings, agent research, and other traditional approaches to publishing she will review newer models, including crowdfunding and self-publishing.
Mary Anne was born in Colombo, Sri Lanka on July 26, 1971, of Tamil parents from Jaffna and Negombo. Though she spoke fluent Tamil as a very young girl, moving to the United States and learning English deprived her of the ability to speak it. Fortunately, she can usually understand her family.
Mary Anne writes in multiple genres: mainstream fiction, nonfiction, science fiction/fantasy, and erotica. Her most recent book of fiction is The Stars Change, a novella composed of linked stories, telling the story of a university planet where war has just broken out.
