"I have had many women approach me, sharing their own stories, and ask me how it feels to have a second chance at 40," Hatcher said in a statement released Tuesday by Hyperion. "With this book, I truly hope to reach everyone that I don't bump into on the street and share my story."
Hatcher won a Golden Globe in January. She recently received an Emmy nomination for her role as single mom Susan Mayer in "Desperate Housewives," a dark satire about suburbia that became a hit in its debut season.
When she accepted her Golden Globe for best actress in a TV comedy, Hatcher thanked ABC for giving "me a second chance at a career when I couldn't have been a bigger has-been."
