Clinton is currently wrapping up her time in the post, with her last day scheduled for Feb. 1.

“I don’t know what I’ll say in it yet,” Clinton said during a news conference, when she stated that she was planning on penning another memoir.

She released her first book in 1996 with “It Takes A Village,” which focused on what it takes to raise children today and the role that society should play. Her 2003 memoir, “Living History,” began with her childhood and discussed her time as First Lady in the White House. She also authored a 1998 children’s book titled “Dear Socks, Dear Buddy,” which detailed how kids could write letters to White House pets.

Clinton’s husband and former president Bill Clinton has also written several titles, including his newest, “Back to Work,” which was published in 2011 and focused on the US economy.

During the same news conference, Clinton said that she is “not inclined” to launch a presidential campaign for 2016. 

“I’m not thinking about anything like that right now,” she said. “I am looking forward to finishing up my tenure as secretary of state and then catching up on about 20 years of sleep deprivation.”
