Schultz has previously penned three novels, all of which handle more mature content, like her collection of unrevealed newspaper columns, the memoir of her life on the campaign trail, and a fiction novel that takes a look at the lives of three women in Northeast Ohio. She also won a Pulitzer Prize for her columns that provided a voice for the underrepresented and underprivileged.
The news comes on Schultz’s 64th birthday, wherein she tweeted a childhood photo of herself alongside the sentiment that she is now older than her mother, who has since passed away. The book will be published by Razorbill Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House.
