Egrets Reading

My Chicken Soup Story

I just found out that my memoir story, "Morning Walk," will be published in the next edition of Chicken Soup for the Dieter's Soul in January 2007!

A month ago I was told I'd made the final cut, and signed contracts, subject releases, etc, but told that there was still no guarantee it would be in the final manuscript. So, I've been on pins and needles, unable to tell anyone because it still wasn't a sure thing.

Well, today I can tell everyone. It's in! My dad is one very, very proud man. I wrote this story as a tribute to him and how he inspired me to lose weight.
