Tim Howard's 'The Keeper' due out in December
[SOCCER PUBLISHING] U.S. World Cup goalkeeper Tim Howard has parlayed his success into a book deal with HarperCollins
Publishers, which will publish his memoir, "The Keeper," due out on Dec. 9.
In a HarperCollins release, Howard said he was eager to talk about his career and his battles with
Tourette’s syndrome and he hopes to inspire others.
"I've always wanted to write a book," he said. " My goal is to share many of the highs and lows of my journey -- with a little
bit of the magic of the World Cup and the English Premier League -- in the hope that it will provide others with some inspiration to reach for their own dreams."
The 35-year-old Howard
announced last week he plans to take time off from the national team to spend more time with his family. He is currently contracted with Everton through the 2017-18 season.
Howard, is the
all-time leader in caps among U.S. keepers with 102 and started every game for the USA at his second straight World Cup.
He shot to national celebrity status with his record-setting 16
saves in the USA's 2-1 overtime loss to Belgium in the round of 16 at the World Cup. NBCSN viewers can see him on the air as a commentator on midweek EPL telecasts.
"The courage and
resiliency that Tim displayed against Belgium are rooted in his life-long battle with Tourette's Syndrome and his faith and belief in himself under extreme pressure, " said David Hirshey, Harper senior vice president and executive editor who will edit the adult memoir. "Readers will get to know a humble soccer hero who has made saves -- and been saved."
