I'm a 39 year old aspiring writer with Cerebral Palsy hoping to write and publish a memoir about my history as a fan of the late musician, Prince. I want to tell the story of how Prince's life and work inspire me to learn and to continue to grow into the best person I can be while living and coping with the struggles and limitations of my disability. I am raising funds to allow me to pay a developmental editor to help me formulate, write, and edit the book and pitch it to agents and publishers. I also need funds to license artwork and song lyrics for the book.

As a man and an artist, Prince represents both who I am and who I aspire to be. He was creative, intelligent, kind, driven, passionate and unique – all qualities I see in myself. Yet he was also bold, adventurous, self-assured, and successful. He is a shining example of someone who rose from humble beginnings to become a legend through hard work, dedication, and love of his craft. He remained true to himself and to his beliefs despite overwhelming obstacles and countless adversaries staring him in the face. He has touched the hearts and minds of millions of people throughout the world through his God-given gift of song.

This is my first major book project and I have a meager income, so I need your support to be able to fund the book from the ground up, starting with development and continuing through to pitching to agents and publishers. It will be a deliberate, slow process, but you can be a part of it all as you benefit from the unique rewards I'm offering to my supporters.
