Lea Michele

The 'Glee' actress has been commissioned by Harmony Books, an imprint of Random House’s Crown Publishing Group, to write 'Brunette Ambition', a "part memoir, part how-to and part style-guide" which will portray her life "from normal Bronx-born schoolgirl to Broadway child star to lead actress in one of the most popular shows on television".

Lea said in a statement: “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.”

Linking to an article about her book deal, an excited Lea wrote on Twitter: “So excited to FINALLY get to share my exciting news with you all!!! #BRUNETTEAMBITION (sic).”

The 26-year-old actress has been busy spending time with her boyfriend Cory Monteith, 30, since he was released from rehab last month.

The couple first jetted to Canada to see his family before enjoying a romantic break in Mexico.

Lea tweeted about their romantic vacation, writing: "Sailing off on another adventure. Putting down the electronics for the next few days.. Gonna rest up mind body and soul! See u soon! (Sic)"
