Harlequin to publish Orange Is the New Black actress’s memoir

Harlequin has signed a six-figure deal with Laverne Cox, LGBT activist and star on the popular Netflix series Orange Is the New Black.

Cox, a transgender actress who plays an inmate named Sylvia, was approached by Harlequin to write her memoir. Publicity director Shara Alexander told The Washington Post: “The editors at Harlequin Non-fiction aggressively pursued Cox to write a book. They met with her and were awed by her story, her writing and her devotion to the LGBT community. Editor Rebecca Hunt won the book in a heated auction from agent Kent Wolf at Lippincott Massie McQuilkin for a six-figure deal.”

In a statement, Cox said, “By sharing my full, unvarnished story, including details of my life and family history I have never before revealed, I hope to provide a voice and safe place for those who have suffered because of their race, class, gender, abuse, violence and trauma.”

The untitled memoir is scheduled for publication in 2015.
