Despite the fact that Shonda Rhimes is busy being a single mother, she still finds time to create award winning television shows such as Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy. And now, she is additionally writing a new book which is “part memoir, part inspiration, part prescription.” Shonda revealed that this book can inspire others. She said:
“Simon and Schuster is crazy for giving me a book deal, as I am clearly in no position to be handing out wisdom.[...]I have made a lot of mistakes as a single mother, and as a working mother, and as a sleepless mother, and as a dating mother. And I did all of it while running a bunch of TV shows. So I’m going to write about that and hope my kids don’t use it against me in therapy later.”
Simon and Shuster will be publishing her new book. According to Marysue Rucci, the Vice President and Editor-in-Chief of the company, it is only proper that Shonda should write a book which talks about her own story. She said:
““Shonda Rhimes is bar none in the storytelling realm. Now fans of her phenomenal shows can read Shonda’s story in her own words – and marvel at how Shonda built a phenomenal career. Readers everywhere will cheer the fearless decisions Shonda has made to achieve happiness.””
How did she accomplish all of this?
