More than 10 years after taking home the coveted title of The Apprentice, Bill Rancic has found a new career — as a writer!
The father-of-one, 44, has had his debut novel picked up by a publisher and it’s due to hit shelves later this year.
Bill, his wife Giuliana and their son, Duke.
The book, titled First Light, tells the story of a couple recounting how they survived a plane crash to their 10-year-old son.
“First Light pulls from my own life experiences to tell a fictional story of love, survival and hope,” the reality TV personally said. “My desire is that people finish this book feeling empowered to tackle life’s countless challenges and obstacles. I believe through determination and faith, anything can be achieved no matter how insurmountable the odds may appear. It was an incredible, cathartic experience writing my first novel, and I hope everyone finds the same inspiration and thrill while reading it that I had while putting it together.”
Last August, Bill — who has already written three self-help books — had an experience similar to his novel’s protagonists.
Moments after he parachuted out of a plane at the Chicago Air and Water Show, two parachuters were killed after they collided mid-air.
