ITV 1 The Chase’s Shaun Wallace, aka The Dark Destroyer, has signed a book deal with Cranthorpe Millner Publishers for his autobiography, Chasing the Dream.
Wallace’s autobiography will touch on his journey and many years of hard work, determination and will serve as an inspiration to anyone who has known the pain and hardship of trying to make it in a world filled with people who seem to be against you.
On December 5, 2004, he became the first black person to win the BBC television quiz show Mastermind, and since then his career has catapulted and he is now a household name, appearing on ITV’s smash hit teatime quiz show The Chase.
Speaking on the news, Wallace said: “I am so excited to start this journey with Cranthorpe Millner. Every day my friends and my fans ask me when my book might be available to buy and now the wait is nearly over.”
Kirsty-Ellen Smillie, Chief Executive Officer, Cranthorpe Millner Publishers, commented: “We are thrilled Shaun chose to work with us, as we know he had many offers! He made the right choice and we can’t wait to get this book out to the public and on the shelves as soon as possible, as we do think his book is going to speak to so many people.” source : http://www.voice-online.co.uk
