West Point, UT, January 26, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Native Utahan, LaRae Parry, aka known as The Crazy Lady, is a top finalist in MARSocial’s Author-of-the-Year Competition. She represents the USA in the largest International altruistic Author/Book/Film competition ever launched on the World-Wide-Web. The contest is sponsored by MARSocial Author of the Year, and Keeran Vaanie Creations/International Film Producers. Finalists from other countries come from England, Wales, Ireland, Germany, France, Israel, Pakistan, Scotland, Canada, Australia and others.
The competition is now being called "The Author's X-Factor" as it has helped provide a global platform for the outstanding finalists. The top twenty authors will be in "The Winner's Circle," with the winner having a chance of his or her book being made into a movie by Keeran Vannie Creations/International Film Producers.
Parry's book excerpt has gone out to literally billions on the large social media networking site, with well over 200,000 tweets on Twitter alone. In October, Parry won MARSocial's Author of the Week with her first entry from her debut novel, "The Danish Pastry."
In "The Danish Pastry," Leslee Larsen, the princess from Denmark, runs away when she learns of her pre-arranged marriage. The fun starts the minute she steps onto a commercial airline, incognito. How was she to know she was flying straight into the arms of a completely irresistible playboy and the famous ghost who haunts San Diego's Hotel Del Coronado? Readers will laugh, cry, and be a tad bit frightened in this Romantic Comedy.
About the Author
In 2005 Parry landed on life-support from respiratory failure after botched surgery. Recovery required learning how to stand, walk, and read. While the Internet and social media were exploding, LaRae was in therapy, relearning how to function in the world with a new disability (oxygen). In 2010, as part of her therapy to learn to read again, she wrote. "The Danish Pastry" is the result of her therapy to learn to read. When asked, LaRae says, “Even though I could breathe, I didn't feel alive until I could read again. What a dark world it is when a person cannot read.”
