"From Arkansas to the White House and back, I'm excited to tell my story about the challenges of being a working mom at the highest level of American politics, and my role in the historic fight raging between the Trump administration and its critics for the future of our country," Sanders said in the release from New York-based publisher St. Martin's Press. 

Sanders signed on with Fox News to be a contributor in August and will make her debut on Sept. 6 on "Fox & Friends." 

She worked on the Trump campaign and later in the White House, where she spent approximately two years as press secretary. In that role, she oversaw the demise of the daily press briefing and had a strained relationship with the press corps.

Sanders's father, Mike Huckabee, was governor of Arkansas for 11 years. Huckabee is also a Fox News contributor and once hosted a weekend show on the network.

Trump has been vocally supportive of a Sanders gubernatorial bid, though the former press secretary indicated upon her departure that she hoped to spend more time with her family.
