"Britain's Got Talent" star Susan Boyle is set to tell all about her life in a new autobiography.

The book, "The Woman I Was Born To Be," will be published in the autumn less than 12 months after the debut of Susan's record-breaking debut album, "I Dreamed A Dream."

"I'm writing this book to try to show that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover and I hope it will benefit other people," said Boyle, 49.

"When I strutted on to the stage for that audition, I was a scared wee lassie, still grieving for my mother, not caring how I looked," she said.

The death of Susan's Irish mom Bridget in 2007 was a turning point in Susan's life.

It prompted her to enter the national competitions in Britain as a tribute to her beloved mom who was 91 when she died.
"I think I've grown up a lot in the last year, become more of a lady, and I'm not so frightened any more.

"My story demonstrates that you shouldn't just look at the label, you should look at the whole person, emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually, and I hope that telling it will show that dreams are not impossible, if you've got courage and a willingness to go on - no matter what the circumstances."
