The LIVE! star has had an incredible life

The book's description reads: "Live Wire will feature a collection of personal essays on childhood, motherhood, marriage, her career and the intersection of all the above – putting her thoughtfulness, assertiveness and deep understanding of the dynamics of gender and power on full display".

What's more, Kelly hopes that this is just the start, as she told Parade last year that her ultimate goal would be working behind the scenes and writing, as it's something she enjoys so much.
