After nearly six years of collaboration with Deirdre Gogarty and hundreds of edits and revisions with Dave Malone, I am pleased to announce My Call to the Ring: A Memoir of A Girl Who Yearns to Box is now available from Glasnevin Publishing.
Deirdre Gogarty and I were thrilled to receive the blurbs below. And there are more on the way.
“If you’ve ever wondered why and how people do extraordinary, almost impossible things, read My Call to the Ring. Deirdre Gogarty knocked me out with this book.”—Ted Mann, former National Lampoon editor, television writer and producer
“This is a great story with a whole lot of heart. I know what it’s like to be talked down to, and so does Deirdre Gogarty. Her memoir goes toe to toe with the best boxing stories out there.”—Larry Holmes, former world heavyweight champion
“When I saw Deirdre Gogarty’s magnificent fight with Christy Martin on a Tyson show, I knew she had the grit of a real champion. After reading her memoir, I have no doubt.”—Chuck “The Real Rocky” Wepner
I am forever grateful to the people (and critters) in my daily life and on Facebook and Twitter who have kept me going with their support and encouragement. The list is long. But you know who you are, and I love you dearly.
Hope you enjoy the true story of Deirdre Gogarty as she defies convention to answer her call to the ring.
