NEW YORK (AP) - Her immediate plans are to host “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. But Taraji P. Henson also has a memoir in her future.

The Oscar-nominated actress, who stars as Cookie Lyon in the Fox series “Empire,” has a deal with the Simon & Schuster imprint 37 Ink. The publisher told The Associated Press on Thursday that the book is currently untitled with a planned mid-2016 release.

Henson, 44, will write about her childhood in a rough Washington, DC neighborhood, being a single parent and her film and TV roles. She also appeared in the films “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” ”Hustle & Flow” and “Baby Boy” and was an Emmy nominee for the TV movie “Taken from Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story.”
