The 2015 Oscar winner, who was married to actors Nicolas Cage and Thomas Jane, has signed with publisher Random House to pen a tome that will centre on her unconventional acting family, her life as a young, single mother, and her trials and tribulations as an actress.

Random House publisher Susan Kamil praises Arquette in a statement which reads: "Patricia Arquette is a remarkable woman. The instant empathy audiences feel when they see her work on screen is completely evident on the page. The material I read is revelatory and deeply moving. Not a surprise from an actress of such nuance and intelligence."

Arquette adds, "Writing a memoir will be a new and intimate artistic journey for me, and I hope to bring to it the same honesty I have always sought to bring to my work as an actor."

The title and release date have yet to be revealed.
