In preparation for my own book launch, I recently attended a book signing and event with famous best selling author Emily Giffin.

Emily’s latest book “Where We Belong” is her 5th book. All of her prior books were NY Times best sellers. One book “Something Borrowed” was made into a box office smash movie starring Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin.

When I recently perused Emily’s website at and saw fabulous photos of all of her various book tours, signing and splash parties with well known personalities, I dreamed of similar opportunities for my forthcoming book.

“Changed by Chance…Champion by Choice” is officially a finished manuscript! I collaborated with professional “book doctor” Tim Vandehey on this project. We are now seeking to engage a literary agent and to sign an agreement with a publisher for distribution. A secondary goal is to develop a movie from the book as well.
