Lea Michele has added another string to her bow, not content with being the all singing, all-dancing star of hit show Glee, the star has announced plans to release her first book.
The actress revealed the big news on her twitter page today, writing
Lea has landed a deal with Random House’s Crown Publishing Group, with the publisher announcing the details of the project today.
Entitled ‘Brunette Ambition’, the book Is described as a “part memoir, part how-to and part style guide” that tells Lea’s story “from normal Bronx-born schoolgirl to Broadway child star to lead actress in one of the most popular shows on television.” Sounds thrilling!

The release goes onto say that the book will offer fans a “behind-the-scenes perspective” from Michele, who has also appeared on Broadway in “Spring Awakening,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Ragtime” and “Les Misérables,” as well as her “practical advice and lessons” for her fans who hope to follow their idol into showbiz.
With a pencilled in release date of next Spring, there’s no word on whether Lea will include details about her personal life and most intriguingly any insight into her off screen relationship with co-star Cory Monteith, who checked into rehab earlier this year.
Lea meanwhile seems to suggest that it’s more of a ‘guidebook’ than a deep personal look into her life, revealing in a statement today:
“There wasn’t a guidebook when I was growing up, that detailed everything I would need to do, and know, to get where I am today. But I believe I can write one of sorts: not a how-to-make-it-in-show-business book, but a guide to harnessing tenacity, passion, enthusiasm and hard work to make your dreams come true.”
