I can hardly believe that I am about to type the following sentence.
This week I accepted an offer from Penguin to publish my memoir.
I know that some of this may be surprising — I’ve kept completely silent about the process here on my blog, and actually with most of my friends as well. Suffice to say, I’ve been working incredibly hard on this book and I couldn’t be more thrilled or more humbled to have found a home for it. I also can’t thank my dazzling agent Wendy enough for everything she has done.
I cried the other day thinking about how much I want to share this news with my parents, but how I wouldn’t even be writing this book had they not died. I can’t help but feel that they are somewhere right now, smiling at me.
