It's official!

Now that the deal has appeared in Publishers Weekly, I am free to announce that HarperCollins has bought the right to publish my next book, which will be a memoir of our family's struggle with anorexia. Working title: BRAVE GIRL EATING. Dr. Daniel le Grange of the University of Chicago has agreed to write the foreword, and my daughter Kitty will write an afterword.

I couldn't be happier. If I can do what I'm supposed to do, the book will be published in spring 2010.

Congratulations! May your book bring comfort and hope to others facing the struggle, and understanding to those who haven't dealt with this in their own lives.

I, for one, can't wait to read it.

Great news! Happy for you, though sorry you had to live the story to find out how to conquer ED. I know your story will inspire others to stay strong when they lose all sense of direction. I know I looked first to find out who beat an ED and how they did it.

I'll be on the hunt for the final product!! I love that Kitty is writing an afterword and a Dr. is writing a foreword. And that you're in the middle.
