Patrick Swayze's Memoir Due Out This Fall

Patrick Swayze is writing up a storm.

The actor who, despite radio reports, is "alive and well," is preparing to release his memoir this Fall.

According to the publishers, Pat's book will start with his childhood, cover his career, and then detail "his brave fight against a diagnosis of stage-four pancreatic cancer, from which he has gleaned wisdom and has remained resolutely optimistic."

Always by his side, Patrick's wife of over 30 years, Lisa Niemi, is also writing parts of the book. They are the ultimate team.

"With everything I've been fortunate enough to do in my life, and covering such a wide range of diverse subject matters, I'm told that my story has been inspirational to people," Patrick said in a statement. "I will write from my heart about these experiences and, aside from the sheer pleasure of doing it, if people happen to garner inspiration from it, or incentive, or find a new way to love, it would be wonderful."

I have a feeling that's not going to be a problem.
