Former Vice President Mike Pence writes his autobiography, signing with Simon & Schuster to publish his memoirs which will cover his life from Columbus, Ohio, to governor until his tenure as Vice President to Donald Trump.
The publisher said it signed a two-book deal with Pence, with the first book due for publication in 2023. Pence was represented by David Vigliano and Thomas Flannery of Vigliano Associates.
In a statement, Pence said, “I am grateful to have the opportunity to tell the story of my life in public service to the American people, to serve in Congress in the governor’s office of Indiana and as a Vice President of the United States.
Dana Canedy, senior vice president and publisher of Simon & Schuster, said “Pence’s revealing autobiography will be the definitive book on one of the most important presidencies in American history.”
A plethora of books will be published in the coming years by Trump administration insiders and reporters who have closely covered his administration, which seemed to move from one extraordinary story to another.
Ironically, Simon & Schuster was part of the drama, as it published John Bolton’s memoir, The room where it happened, which Trump’s Justice Department attempted to rule out prior to publication. He also published from Bob Woodward Fear and Mary Trump’s Too much and never enough.
Pence’s autobiography is still untitled. If the date 2023 holds for Pence’s first book, it will be released just as the next presidential race heats up. Pence is among the best potential contenders, especially if Trump does not enter the race.
