The books she will sign include her inspirational autobiography "The Revelation of a Star's Endless Shine: A Young Woman's Autobiography of a 20-Year Tale of Trials & Tribulations" and "101 Great Ways to Improve Your Life, Volume 2", which she co-authored with leading experts like Jack Canfield, John Gray, and Richard Carlson. Cheng will also take pre-orders for the latest installment in the bestselling "Wake Up...Live the Life You Love" series, to which she contributed, along with highly notable people including Carla and Lou Ferrigno, TV's the original "Incredible Hulk" and neighbor on the network television comedy show, "King of Queens"; Dr. Wayne Dyer; and Tony Robbins.

Being both blind and physically disabled herself, Cheng expresses a strong desire to help those who are not only stricken by hunger and wars but also by their disabilities. "Being blind or disabled is already hard enough without having to endure the suffering resulting from natural catastrophes or economic barriers. I have always wished to help anyone in need, and this is my chance to do so. I hope people will support me in this good cause," says Cheng.
