At 27, it seems Lindsay Lohan has done it all. 

Now we can add author to the list.

According to TMZ, Lohan has a literary agent and a book deal in the works.

She recently met with agent literary Waxman Leavell, an encounter which was filmed for her reality series on OWN. Leavell has represented other celebrities like US Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, “Survivor”'s Mark Burnett, Cheryl Burke from “Dancing with the Stars.”

In characteristic Lohan fashion, this will likely be a rip-roaring, no-holds-barred, tell-all tale about the troubled actress’s life, including her arrests, drug abuse, acting career, partying, and family life.

“She says she wants to open up every part of her life,” writes TMZ.

Lohan’s book began as a series of journal entries written in rehab as a therapeutic exercise, according to reports.

Lohan began her career as a child actress in three Disney films: “The Parent Trap,” “Freaky Friday,” and “Herbie Fully Loaded.”

As the LA Times notes, penchant for public partying derailed her career and landed her in a cycle of arrests, court appearances, jail time, probation, community service, and rehab. In 2007, she was arrested for driving under the influence and possession of cocaine.

Did we mention she has already received several offers for a book deal, “most in the six-figure range,” according to TMZ? 

Ah, the literary rewards of stars behaving badly.
