Celebrity biographer Randy Jernigan has signed an agreement with his American publisher to write a biography on the British Royal family which he's tentatively titled, 'Family Secrets.' Jernigan, who recently completed principle writing on The Life and Career of Daniel Radcliffe, says he's always been an admirer of Queen Elizabeth and the rest of her family, and has always wanted to take a serious look at the British Monarch in a book. 'I think Queen Elizabeth is a great lady with a huge heart, especially when it comes to her family and her people,' says Jernigan. 'I've been collecting information on 'the family' for years in hopes that one day I'd have the opportunity to write an in depth, honest piece about them so I'm happy the chance has finally presented itself.' Jernigan, best known for his aggressive interview style, says the book will be an honest look at the business of being royal, and even share 'some new secrets' from some very solid royal sources that, at one point, worked for the Queen.' 'Family Secrets' is scheduled for release in the Fall of 2015 through Creative Partners Publishing House. (more...)
