Jenna Ushkowitz to Pen CHOOSING GLEE
According to The Hollywood Reporter, GLEE star Jenna Ushkowitz plans to write a book in which she will share her Broadway experiences as well as her time on the set of the FOX drama series with her fans. CHOOSING GLEE will "explore the actress' motivational approach to life and share stories from her time on the Fox musical."
Ushkowitz has starred for the last three seasons of GLEE as Tina Cohen-Chang. Explained the actress, "People ask me, 'How did you get here?' Well, I learned how to fight for what I want. I learned to focus and work hard and not give up. I learned that every obstacle is really an opportunity."
The actress, who has been performing since she was three years old, appeared on Broadway in the 1996 revival of 'The King and I' and later served as an understudy for 'Spring Awakening.' She comments, "My goal is for you to walk away from this book looking at the world differently than when you started. It's about how to have, do and be anything you want."
Ushkowitz joins fellow GLEE Cast members turned authors Jane Lynch, who recently released her autobiography, Happy Accidents, in September, and Chris Colfer, whose first book The Land of Stories is due out on July 17.
CHOOSING GLEE is set to be published in the spring of 2013 from St. Martin's Press.
