Shakira's author father is planning to write a parental self-help book based on his own experiences as the singer's dad.
Father and daughter are currently promoting his new book Al Viento y al Azar (In the Wind and at Random) in South America and William Mebarak reveals his next project will be a lot more personal.
He explains, "It is not 100 per cent biographical. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s objective. It's to be more a guide for parents."
Meanwhile, Shakira has turned editor in a bid to give her father's new book a big boost.The Hips Don't Lie hitmaker has shown off her literary talents by editing the novel and writing the prologue.
Speaking about the book, which features a collection of opinion essays and love stories, she tells Notitas de Noticias, "In Al Viento y al Azar, I was captivated by everything: the rebellious attitude of some of its texts, the anarchy in its structure, the brutal honesty in his words."
