She wrote “Peace + Love” with Dean Merrill in 1973 and is hard at work on another book, which she hopes is due out about this time next year.
“I’ve got 18 of the 24 chapters done, so it should be sometime next year, unless something comes up with my family. That’s where my priority is, so the book will have to wait in that case.
“I’m writing this one myself. I’m having a ball. I really like doing research.”
The book will be about freedom: the freedom she found in skating, the freedom she grew up with, and how she experienced it behind the Iron Curtain during her skating championship days.
