Celebrity Mom Shania Twain Writing Memoir

shania twain memoir book

Shania Twain's new book, a memoir, will be available in 2011

Celebrity mom Shania Twain is writing a memoir no doubt she’s got some interesting tales to tell!

Shania Twain suffered a pretty serious break up from husband Mutt Lange in 2008. Mutt had an affair with one of Shania’s best friends, leading to the end of their marriage. Twain has since moved on with the husband of the “other woman,” Frédéric Thiébaud.


Shania Twain explains the need to write a book: “There have been moments in my life I was concerned by the reality that tomorrow would never come. Recently I experienced one of those moments to an intensity that brought on a sudden urgency to document my life before I ran out of time, before I had the opportunity to share an honest and complete account of my life, in my own words.”

Twain adds, “There are times in your life that are meant for reflection, and this was one of them. I began writing this book with a sincere respect for the past, present and future as something never to be taken for granted.”

Shania Twain’s book will talk about growing up in rural Ontario, Canada, where her family struggled to make ends meet, the “tragic death of her mother and stepfather,” and how she pursued her musical passion, burned up the country charts and became a household name.

Twain and Lange have a son, Eja D’Angelo, who was born on August 12, 2001.

Look for Shania Twain’s memoir in spring 2011. Twain will also have a documentary series on the Oprah Winfrey Network next year.
