ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Nancy Kerrigan began competing at the national level in 1991 when she placed 3rd at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, allowing her to qualify for the 1991 World Championships where she won the bronze medal as part of an American sweep.

In 1992, she earned a bronze medal in the Albertville Winter Olympics and the silver medal at the 1992 World Championships. In 1993 Kerrigan became the United States Ladies Champion and followed that up with her historic silver medal performance at the 1994 Lillehammer Winter Olympics.

Nancy is currently executive producing the upcoming documentary Why Don’t You Lose 5 lbs which will examine the silent epidemic of eating disorders in sports as well as the feature film Fire and Ice which is being produced by Picturestart. Nancy was on the Advisory Board for the Aurora Games, an international platform for women in sports and entertainment. Nancy’s first children’s book Stronger Than She Thinks was published in November 2023.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Stronger Than She Thinks shares how Nancy (age 8) and her family sacrifice time, money, and effort into her clear skill, talent, and passion for figure skating. She’s really good at it, but money is tight while she’s learning to land the hardest of figure skating jumps—the axel. And she must be able to do one in order to go to her first competition.

Her skates are too small, her feet hurt, but try after try, she gets up off the ice and takes another turn around the ice until she finally lands that first (wobbly) axel and then lands it solidly at her first competition. Persistence, hard work, and the importance of believing in yourself are highlighted in this story from the earliest moments of Nancy Kerrigan’s figure skating career.

This book is recommended for ages 4-8

Stronger Than She Thinks will be available for purchase and signing or for checkout with a library card.
