NEW YORK (AP) - Kitty Kelley’s next book will be short on celebrity gossip and long on gender and politics.

Kelley has a deal with Grand Central Publishing for a book about the record 98 women serving in the current Congress and how they might change Washington. Grand Central, a division of Hachette Book Group, announced Monday that the book is currently untitled and is scheduled for 2016.

Kelley is known for unflattering best sellers about Nancy Reagan and Frank Sinatra, but she also has a background in politics. In the 1960s, she worked as a press aide for Sen. Eugene McCarthy, the Democrat and Vietnam War opponent from Minnesota.
