NEW YORK (AP) —  HarperCollins Publishers announced Thursday that it has acquired world rights to Kelly's first book. It will be published by the Harper imprint this fall.

Kelly currently anchors Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File." Before joining Fox, she was a general assignment reporter for WJLA-TV in Washington, D.C. Prior to her career in television news, Kelly practiced law for nine years.

The book was acquired by Lisa Sharkey, who is the senior vice president director of creative development at HarperCollins.

Sharkey says Kelly is "among the most interesting and influential people in America today."

The book will be edited by HarperCollins executive editor Matt Harper.

HarperCollins and Fox News are both subsidiaries of News Corp.
