I'm pleased to announce that after just over a year, I have finally completed the first draft of my memoir.

It has been an interesting ride, to say the least, and one which has challenged me intellectually, emotionally and even physically. I have learned more about myself and about others and their perceptions of me than I had ever imagined. I've revisited countless memories, both good and bad. And I have reconnected with so many friends with whom I had lost touch over the years.

Many thanks go out to all of my family, friends, doctors, and nurses (and anyone else I have forgotten) for your patience, support, and assistance. I could not have reached this point without you!

As I move forward in my quest to get this thing published, I will post any exciting developments right here, at Winheld's World...

That is awesome news Josh !!!!! I never doubted for a second that you were going to complete your book. I've watched you work really hard, sometimes struggling through at times, but your determination was never in question. I eagerly look forward to reading it. Keep me posted. Let me know when we are going to do the book signing tour. I think we should start on the west coast and make our way east.

Congratulations my friend !!!!!!
