Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly signed a book deal with HarperCollins, the publisher announced Thursday.

"Megyn Kelly is among the most interesting and influential people in America today and we are thrilled to be publishing her first book," said Lisa Sharkey, a vice president at HarperCollins, said in a statement. 

"This book is coming out at the perfect time and is bound to be one of the most read and talked about books of the fall."

Kelly has been thrust into the national spotlight due to her feud with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, which started when she pressed the business mogul on his comments about women during the first Republican presidential debate last year.

Trump has since dismissed her as a "lightweight" journalist and raised eyebrows after the debate by saying Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever."
Trump skipped the last Fox News debate after publicly questioning Kelly's ability to be fair to him. Still, he insisted the boycott was more about Fox's treatment of him than about Kelly's role as debate moderator.

HarperCollins is a subsidiary of News Corp., which is owned by Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch.
