Grey’s & Scandal Mastermind Shonda Rhimes Inks First Book Deal

American screenwriter, director, producer and leader of primetime Thursday Shonda Rhimes has just signed her first book deal with Simon & Schuster. The “Scandal” creator describes the book as “part memoir, part inspiration, part prescription.” The book, set to be released in 2015, will focus on her decision to build a family and the challenges of being a single mother while striving for professional success.

Simon and Schuster is crazy for giving me a book deal, as I am clearly in no position to be handing out wisdom…I have made a lot of mistakes as a single mother, and as a working mother, and as a sleepless mother, and as a dating mother. And I did all of it while running a bunch of TV shows. So I’m going to write about that and hope my kids don’t use it against me in therapy later.

Along side her new book and TV shows, Shonda is always in the works of developing a feature film based on an early teleplay, for Sony.
