“I have spent much of my relatively short writing career watching with wide eyes as my colleagues were in the midst of writing memoirs and saying, “I could never do that! My life just isn’t that interesting.” And that’s still true, to a certain extent. This story happening to me right now, however, has altered that feeling I was walking around with, before. This is a mystery my family didn’t even know existed, and it’s a mystery I’m keen on solving, as it is part of my identity. Even beyond that, though, is the knowledge that the words my grandfather wrote, so many of the passages in his book, are words that the world needs to hear right now.”
Welcome to the beginning of my memoir. Coming soon.
