*Gabby Douglas is bringing her life story to the pages of an “inspirational memoir” for a HarperCollins imprint, the gold medal gymnast announced this morning.
“Grace, Gold and Glory, My Leap of Faith,’’ due in December, will detail her journey to gold in the London Olympics.
There will be many references on how her deep Christian faith and the support of her family and the host family she lived with while training for the Olympics helped her focus through the intense scrutiny in London, according to Douglas’s agent, Sheryl Shade. Douglas also wants the book to show that dreams can be achieved by hard work and determination.
Douglas, who will appear with her U.S. gymnastics teammates on tonight’s “MTV’s Video Music Awards,” began fielding book offers only days after her Olympic performance. Shade told TODAY.com that they immediately had 12 inquiries and five solid offers, including three from Christian imprints. They eventually decided on the Zondervan division of HarperCollins.
