She is a member of many nationally ranked speaker associations and has presented for dozens of organizations. Deanna McRae is a Freelance illustrator and graphic designer who created the illustrations for the interior of "Public Speaking Super Powers." Born in sunny California, she grew up in a family of visual and musical artists, sparking her love for creativity at an early age. She is also a computer science major who has designed websites for several small companies. She is the founder and Designer at I 365 Art, a digital design website that's been in business since 2007. Art for Public Speaking Super Powers's cover was specifically created by Dolores Delgado, an artist based in Sebastopol, Calif. Dolores' love of art revealed itself in elementary school, poring over tomes of ancient Greek sculpture. By the age of 11, she was sketching figures and nudes from photographs. She is captivated by the works of the masters, especially Rembrandt for the capture of light and dark and John Singer Sargent for his loose style - combining impressionism with realism.
"Drawing from the experiences of in-the-trenches everyday
speakers, Carma Spence has taken a fun concept of superheroes and
translated it into public speaking skills. A comprehensive look at
excelling in front of an audience, Public Speaking Super Powers is
both accessible and useful for speakers who want to develop their
speaking super powers. Highly recommended!"
