Taraji P. Henson’s career continues to surge now that “Empire” is a certified hit, and now the actress hopes to find the same success as an author.

Page Six writes:

The Oscar-nominated actress, who stars as Cookie Lyon in the Fox series “Empire,” has a deal with the Simon & Schuster imprint 37 Ink. The publisher told The Associated Press on Thursday that the book is currently untitled with a planned mid-2016 release.

Henson, 44, will write about her childhood in a rough Washington, DC neighborhood, being a single parent and her film and TV roles.


Congratulations to Taraji.


  1. Hearing her story about trying to get her degree while pregnant, and then being a single mother in college was truly inspiring. This is definitely a book I’ll be buying. So happy she’s finally getting her accolades!
