November 20, 2015 - By Team AJ
Only seven months after retiring from the squared circle, AJ has begun her newest career as an author with Penguin Random House imprint, Crown Archetype Publishing. Her memoir, entitled Crazy Is My Superpower, will be available in Spring of 2017. Penguin Random House is the world's largest English language trade publisher, and their imprint Crown Archetype is home to such authors as Michelle Obama, Mindy Kaling, Rachel Maddow, and Jillian Michaels, to name a few. Talk about keeping great company! Anyone following AJ through the years knows that penning a memoir has been a huge goal of hers, and Jen and I want to congratulate her on this new adventure. We've seen glimpses of the trying road AJ walked to attain her dreams and now the notoriously private Crazy Chick will open a rare door into her world. Between commericals, clothing lines, charity work, a rumored action movie, and now writing her life story with one of the biggest publishers in the world, it seems retirement doesn't sit so well with our Geek Goddess. Here is the official announcement via LeshneAgency.com:
