Sen. Scott Brown, the Massachusetts Republican who pulled off one of the biggest upsets in recent years by winning the seat once held by Sen. Edward Kennedy, has a book deal.

HarperCollins announced Tuesday that it will publish Brown's memoir, currently untitled, in early 2011. Financial terms were not disclosed; Brown was represented by Washington attorney Robert Barnett, whose many clients have included Kennedy, the liberal icon who died last summer after more than 40 years in office.

"I am humbled to have the opportunity to share my personal story in hopes to inform, encourage and inspire others," the 50-year-old Brown said in a statement released by the publisher.

Despite running in a solidly Democratic state, Brown won a special election in January to serve the remainder of Kennedy's term and became a hero to Republicans nationwide.

"Sen. Brown will write about his family background, his early career, and his ascent to the office of Massachusetts senator, one of the biggest political coups of the decade," according to a statement issued by HarperCollins. "He will also discuss the policies and issues he cares about most passionately."

HarperCollins also noted that Brown's contract will be subject to review by the Senate Ethics Committee.
