Carol Orchard was married to the famed writer from 1970 until his death in 1998 and she now plans to document their time together by putting pen to paper for a new memoir.
She says, ""(I want to write this book) while I have full recall and no false memory... I had a wonderful 28 years with Ted and I hope to record them for posterity... The people who (previously) wrote about Ted were not flies on the wall, even if they write as if they were. Nobody really knows what goes on between two people.""
