(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Life imitates art as the actress who plays author Erica Kane on “All My Children” goes to publication.

It Books, an imprint of the prestigious publisher HarperCollins, reported yesterday that daytime’s biggest star Susan Lucci (Erica Kane, “All My Children”) will be penning a memoir to be released in 2011.

The currently untitled book will cover the Emmy-winners career including her 40 years as the star of “AMC,” her other numerous television and stage projects and of course her harrowing, much-publicized journey for her first (and to-this-point only) Lead Actress win at the Daytime Emmy’s.

Lucci is currently in the middle of a long summer vacation and is expected to return to the Los Angeles set of “AMC” to begin taping again in September.

“All My Children” airs Weekdays on ABC. “AMC” also airs 24/7 online at ABC.com.
