The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is releasing a book aimed at helping readers heal from their darkest times. 

From actress to author, Porsha Williams is doing it all. Williams has announced that her first book, The Pursuit of Porsha, will be released by next year. The star will dig into the details of her life as she shares with her readers some of her most intimate memories. This includes her most tragic experiences, her long-buried secrets, and even her financial hardships. All of the stories she writes about have shaped her into the business owner and mother she is today.

On her Instagram, Williams posts a screenshot from PEOPLE, announcing her upcoming book.

“This has been a long time coming,” Williams writes. “I am more than a soundbite or a headline or a rumor,” she quotes from her statement via PEOPLE. “I’m a strong Black woman who has triumphed over adversity and owned every single one of my mistakes. My story is a journey of passion, faith, and discovery.”

Williams tells PEOPLE that she wants readers to learn how to overcome their darkest moments. In the same statement, she says, “Putting yourself out there in these times can be both a blessing and curse. I want to share the real me and my story here, including both my trials as well as my many blessings.”

The star has also been a vocal activist within the Black Lives Matter movement. She told PEOPLE, “It was devastating to feel like I was out there trying to stand with my people, stand with our allies, and help them raise a message of hope and to be silenced and not able to breathe because of the gas bomb that was thrown.”

She then added, “Anybody who is out there now and they feel like they can’t move forward because of the mistreatment the police and what they’re doing to us … I would say to them, stay focused on the cause.”

The Pursuit of Porsha will most likely be published by September 2021.
