Simone Biles Tells Her Inspiring Story in Official Autobiography

Press Releases, Talent + Properties

Olympic gold medalist and World Champion gymnast Simone Biles has an inspiring story to tell in her new autobiography – Courage to Soar - from Zondervan. The official autobiography written with New York Times bestselling author Michelle Buford will be on sale November 15, 2016, and features a foreword by Mary Lou Retton.

Simone's entrance into the world of gymnastics started unexpectedly, but her natural talent and drive have made her into one of the top gymnasts in the world.

"I want people to reach for their dreams. If you're willing to put in a lot of work, and if you're focused and determined, you can go really far. That doesn't mean everything will happen overnight; for me, it took years of training and perseverance to reach my goals. But looking back on it now, I'm glad I didn't give up. There so many people who have inspired me with their love and encouragement along the way — and I want to pass on that inspiration to readers," said Biles.
