Jim Beaver is a busy man. Not only does he star on the CW's Supernatural and CBS' Harper's Island (both airing Thursday nights), but he's also a new author with the recent release of his third book, Life's That Way: A Memoir
fans can look forward to part two of this interview later this week in which he talks about what's ahead for Uncle Bobby, but first, BuddyTV spoke to Jim Beaver about his extremely touching new book. In it he shares the nightly e-mails he wrote to friends and family as he spent his final days together with his wife Cecily. She was dying of cancer and they made plans for him to raise their autistic daughter Maddie alone. The book is full of stories about Jim's time on Supernatural
but at the heart of it, Life's That Way
is a story about enjoying what you have before it's too late.
We spoke with Jim earlier today about his process in writing the new
book and about what he learned from his journey, first with Cecily and
Maddie and then alone but surrounded by supportive fans.
