Hey guys,

Are any of you interested in tackling a biography project?

Last summer, I was given a interesting opportunity:
Write the life story of one of the most successful women horse jockeys.
In 1992 this woman raced to the # 2 spot in the national rankings.
She was then paralyzed in a terrible horse racing accident on a stormy night in Atlantic City.
Since the tragedy she's rebuilt her life by teaching handicapped children how to ride horses.

I've written approximately 1/3 of the book, but I don't have the expertise to finish.
I'm a science fiction and fantasy writer, and I am out of my depth.

She needs a writer who can handle the complexities of biography (research, etc).

If this sounds intriguing, please reply to this post or PM me.

This is not some weird gimmick, and I don't want money:  I just want to find her a good writer.

Thanks much,
Keith

I wish I had the ability to do this, as it seems like a worthwhile endeavor.
I hope you--and she--find someone that will do a good job.

It's one of those life stories that make sports biographies so compelling.

I've gotten a couple of bites, so maybe I'm making progress ... using every social network I have ... Including this one, where it's out of place (and hoping FoulFoot will forgive me this one time).
