Kim Goldman, executive director of the nonprofit SCV Youth Project, releases her e-book today on the murder of her brother, Ronald, and her decades-long legal pursuit of O.J. Simpson. 

Launching a weeklong national book tour, Goldman will appear on “The Today Show,” “The View” and other media spots today through Saturday, Goldman said.

“Writing has been important to me in finding my voice and taking back control of my life,” Goldman said. “I wanted people to know the parts of me that are important and strong, rather than (the victim).”

In her memoir “Can’t Forgive: My Twenty-Year Battle with O.J. Simpson,” the Valencia resident chronicles her very public grieving process, her shock at Simpson’s not-guilty verdict and her tireless attempts to pursue Simpson by every legal means.

Ron Goldman and Simpson’s ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, were murdered in Brown’s Brentwood home in 1994.

Later in her book, Kim Goldman discusses her current work with the SCV Youth Project, a school-based nonprofit that provides counseling and support for teens 12 to 18 years old in 13 local junior and senior high schools.

Published by Texas-based BenBella Books, the memoir is currently available on Amazon.com and other online booksellers, said Leslie Garson, president of Garson & Wright Public Relations.

A future print release is a possibility, Goldman said, and she is slated to release a second book in late fall 2015.

“I didn’t set out to do this,” Goldman said. “Writing is a passion of mine — it’s cathartic — so I just decided to write it all down and tell my stories.”
