Meredith Baxter, who recently came out on national television, will soon be writing a memoir about her personal and professional experiences.

The Broadway Books imprint of Crown Publishing Group announced it has acquired a yet-to-be-written, yet-to-titled memoir by Baxter, who “will present a fully realized portrait of her life as an actress, mother of five children and grandmother, and will candidly discuss her fight with breast cancer, her 19 years of sobriety, entrepreneurship and her decision to come out,” the publisher said, according to The New York Times.

Baxter, best known for playing Elyse Keaton in the 1980’s sitcom “Family Ties,” recently made her public admission, “I am a lesbian,” in an interview with Matt Lauer on NBC’s TODAY show.
