Biografía del autor
Maureen Zappala is a former NASA propulsion engineer, turned professional speaker, and the founder of High Altitude Strategies a a coaching and training service. She encourages high-performers who struggle with the “Impostor Syndrome,” the internal voice that says “I’m not as smart as everyone thinks I am, and they’re about to figure it out!”
With a BS in mechanical engineering from the University of Notre Dame, she became the first female and youngest manager of NASA’s Propulsion Systems Laboratory. While most engineers are not known for verbal communication skills, Maureen has shattered that stereotype. In 2009, she was in the top 10 of 30,000 contestants in the Toastmasters World Championship of Public Speaking contest. She’s the author of “Great Speakers are Not Born. They’re Built” and co-author of “Buckeye Reflections: Legendary Moments from Ohio State Football. She lives in Medina, Ohio.

It's a book for professionals, so it must appeal to them. Nothing too feminine, flowery or cartoonish. I've written 3 other books, two have fairly busy covers, one is very simple. I don't have a preference. I don't want a white background because it will get lost on a white webpage background like Amazon. I'd like something that is readable in thumbnail size. Not certain of the book size, but probably it will about 4x6, 125 pages (so, a tight spine, about 3/8"). It's a book about the cognitive process (thinking, brain science, logical thought process) as well as some spiritual concepts (shame, vulnerability, trust, relationships) Images like brain with gears, masks, hiding, phonies...these are words I use when talking about it. My website is maureenz.com and gives you a bit of my background. I'm kinda edgy in my design preferences. I like silhouettes, but nothing too abstract.
