Author Biography

MONICA SELES won the French Open at the age of 16. She went on to become the number one ranked woman in tennis, winning a total of nine Grand Slam titles before retiring from the game in 2004. Monica was inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame in 2009. She is now an ambassador for IMMSAM, the inter-governmental institution for the use of Micro-algae Spirulna Against Malnutrition and a board member of the Laureus Sports for Good Foundation, using the power of sport as a tool for change. Her memoir, Getting a Grip: On My Mind, My Body and Myself was a national best-seller.

JAMES LAROSA loves drama, but he was too much of a goody-goody growing up to actually cause any. So he became a television writer, concocting scandalous tales for CBS, NBC, ABC Family and MTV among others. He also dug up dirt in sports, interviewing top athletes for USA Today, Tennis Magazine and Tennis Channel.
