“Glee" actress Lea Michele will write a book that will be “part memoir, part how-to and part style guide,” according to publisher Crown Publishing.

Michele currently stars on the Fox sitcom as singing diva Rachel Berry and said in a statement that her book will advise readers on how to pursue their goals.

“There wasn’t a guidebook when I was growing up, that detailed everything I would need to do, and know, to get where I am today,” Michele said. “But I believe I can write one of sorts: not a how-to-make-it-in-show-business book, but a guide to harnessing tenacity, passion, enthusiasm and hard work to make your dreams come true.”

The book will be titled “Brunette Ambition” and will be released in spring 2014 through Harmony Books, an imprint of the Random House division Crown Publishing.

Michele starred in several Broadway productions growing up, including “Ragtime” and “Fiddler on the Roof,” and caught the public’s attention with her starring role in the original cast of the 2006 musical “Spring Awakening.” She has starred on “Glee” since 2009 and also appeared in the 2011 movie “New Year’s Eve.”
