This here in my hands is a contract. Signed and scanned and suddenly all official. So I can finally share the news: I’m writing a book!!!!! This has long been a dream of mine. Since I could first form sentences I’ve been writing stories—my imagination running wild in all of the little worlds I would create. So I always thought it would be a fiction novel, maybe a little bit of fantasy. But I couldn't shake the feeling that a memoir might be in me too. The truth is, I come from a whole line of authors—most notably my grandfather and father. Writers who published memoirs after having lived out extraordinary tales. My grandfather, The Wild Colonial Boy and my father, The Man in Motion. And now, after having birthed two beautiful boys, I find myself with this story spilling out of me—a story that I know I’m meant to tell in full.
So, this book is becoming a reality. I’ll be taking the rest of the year to work on the manuscript and I can’t wait to share this journey with you guys. I know in writing this book deep healing will begin. And I hope that this book will heal others too.
