Arizona gov. writing book to be published in fall

Posted:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Publishing house HarperCollins says Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has agreed to write a memoir to be published this fall.

The 208-page book will be entitled "Scorpions for Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media, and Cynical Politicos to Secure America's Border."

The 66-year-old Republican has criticized the Obama administration over border security concerns and over the Justice Department's lawsuit challenging Arizona's illegal immigration law that she signed last year.

HarperCollins says Brewer will call on President Barack Obama to secure the border and tell about what she has done it defend her state.

The publishing house announced the book on its website and didn't immediately respond to inquiries from The Associated Press.

Brewer's writing of a memoir first was reported by the Arizona Capitol Times.
