Actress. Model. Recording artist. Fashion designer. Professional partier. Public drug offender, serial rehab participant, recurrent court visitor.  

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.

What is the Monitor difference? Tackling the tough headlines – with humanity. Listening to sources – with respect. Seeing the story that others are missing by reporting what so often gets overlooked: the values that connect us. That’s Monitor reporting – news that changes how you see the world.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
