Fame-to-memoir timeline: December 2004-December 2005 (12 Months)
Nemcova’s writing speed is a testament to her spirit and resilience. The supermodel broke her pelvis and lost her fiancé in the 2004 tsunami while on vacation in Thailand. Less than a year later, she published Love Always, Petra, a memoir of how the disaster changed her life and realigned her goals. The book made Nemcova a household name and raised awareness for disaster relief. Nemcova donated 100% of the proceeds from book sales to Give2Asia/Happy Hearts Fund.
