"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.
"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."
