I’m very pleased to announce I have signed a contract to write the fascinating memoir of Brody Fitzpatrick, one of the first women to become a New York City transit cop and a NYC firefighter. Brody’s journey from poverty and violence in the “burning” Bronx of the late 60’s and 70’s to challenges with gender identification and eventual surgery to become a transgender male is a story of triumph over adversity and has lessons and insights for all of us. I’m honored to tell his story.
