A friend of mine just signed a book deal with Simon & Schuster and from the advertising, I have seen, it appears that the first book will be quite popular.  It will be neat if it becomes a NY Times Best Seller or whatever the highest honor is.

WOW! What couldn't this woman do? I guess she didn't win a season of American Idol 😄. I was eager to read this because we were friend with a family in Fairmont MN (I was 6) with the last name Legler.

Casey Legler’s story is a very interesting one. Born in France. Olympic competitor in swimming. An author. A model. What an interesting life!
