Gabby Douglas, the first woman of color in Olympic history to win an individual all-around competition, is gearing up to release her first book in time for the holidays.
Douglas, 16, gained notoriety after appearing in the 2012 Olympics and even recently performed at the MTV Video Music Awards. However, the gold medalist recently opened up to People magazine about penning a memoir that will hit bookshelves in December.
The book will be published by the Zondervan division of Harper Collins with the title Grace, Gold and Glory: My Leap of Faith. According to Douglas, her dreams of writing a book started long before her dreams of becoming a gold medalist.
“Even before I competed in the Olympics, I always wanted to write a book,” Douglas told People magazine.
