Marlee Matlin working on a memoir

Academy Award-winning actress Marlee Matlin, hot off the last season of ‘‘Dancing With the Stars,’’ is working on a memoir, scheduled to come out next year.

Many folks might not know this about the 42-year-old Matlin, but she's no newbie to the literary beat. She wrote a novel in 2002, Deaf Child Crossing, and two children's books, Nobody’s Perfect and Leading Ladies. The tentative title for the memoir, to be published by Simon Spotlight Entertainment, a Simon & Schuster imprint: I’ll Scream Later.

‘‘As a young girl, I imagined myself as Marcia Brady who just happened to be deaf, skating down the street saying hi to everyone I knew,’’ Matlin said in a statement issued by the publisher. ‘‘But today, as a mom of four, I’m no longer Marcia. I’ve morphed into Alice, the Maid. Goodbye, Marcia, Marcia, Marcia.’’

Matlin made a big splash in the movie world when she won the best actress Oscar for her role in the 1986 film "Children of a Lesser God," opposite William Hurt, who became her off-screen lover as well. Will she tell all? Reportedly, she will ‘‘delve into her loves and life in Hollywood’’ and will write about her ‘‘unresolved issues and battles with addiction and abuse, many of which she kept hidden from the public and her family.’’

gosh is she hot!

Ever since Marlee Matlin burst onto the acting world, she has been a dynamo. I most recently have been enjoying her portrayal of the fiery Jodi Lerner on Showtime's "The L Word." I like how Matlin is looked at as an actress, not a deaf actress. She is an inspiration to many who might think that it's hard to accomplish their goals. And I'm looking forward to seeing what she does next.
