Susan Boyle is out to conquer a new medium. The Scottish singer is working on an autobiography to be published in the fall, reports the BBC. The Woman I Was Born to Be will chronicle her unlikely rise to fame after she appeared on Britain's Got Talent, with the main theme being that you "shouldn't judge a book by its cover," she says.

"When I strutted on to the stage for that audition, I was a scared wee lassie, still grieving for my mother, not caring how I looked," says Boyle. "I think I've grown up a lot in the last year, become more of a lady, and I'm not so frightened any more." (More Susan Boyle stories.)
