Singer/actress Jennifer Lopez is adding author to her resumé with her very first book.

The “On the Floor” hitmaker took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce plans to detail her life in a new memoir called “True Love.”

According to Penguin Publishing, the tome “explores one of her life’s most defining periods – the transformative two-year journey of how, as an artist and a mother, she confronted her greatest challenges, identified her biggest fears, and ultimately emerged a stronger person than she’s ever been.”

The press release from the publishing house continues: “This visually arresting publication is guided by both intimate and electrifying never-before-seen photographs. True Love is an honest and revealing personal diary with hard-won lessons and heartfelt recollections and an empowering story of self-reflection, rediscovery, and resilience.”

In the past couple of years, Lopez divorced ex-husband Marc Anthony, with whom she shares six-year-old twins Max and Emme, dated and ultimately split from back-up dancer Casper Smart, re-signed as a judge on American Idol, and released her eighth studio album, “A.K.A.”

“True Love” is scheduled to hit shelves on Nov. 4.
