Patrick Swayze is writing his memoirs.

The 56-year-old “Dirty Dancing” star – who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2008 – is penning an account of his life, together with his wife Lisa, 52.

According to Bill Rotoko, co-creator of Swayze’s latest acting project “The Beast,” the couple are “each other’s rocks.”

Swayze has likened fighting cancer to “going through hell”, and admits the disease makes him angry and scared.

The actor said: “There’s a lot of fear here. Yeah, I’m scared. Yeah, I’m angry. Yeah, I’m asking why me.”

“Yeah, I’m all this stuff. You can bet that I’m going through hell. And I’ve only seen the beginning of it.”

The star “doesn’t know” if he fears death, but admits the prospect has made him question his beliefs.

He explained: “I don’t know what’s on the other side. I like to believe that I’ve got a lot of guardian warriors on my shoulder, including my dad, so I’m trying to shut up and let my angels speak to me and tell me what I’m supposed to do.”

However, following a brief stay in hospital to treat a recent bout of pneumonia, Swayze remains upbeat.

He said: “I am alive and plan on continuing to stay that way.”
