Former President Bill Clinton is writing his first work of fiction, collaborating with author James Patterson, according to Publishers Weekly.

"The President is Missing" will be on sale June 2018.

"Working on a book about a sitting president — drawing on what I know about the job, life in the White House, and the way Washington works — has been a lot of fun," Clinton said, according to The Hill.

The book's publishers Knopf Doubleday and the Hachette Book Group said inside details about the presidency are informing the story, according to Publishers Weekly.

Patterson said readers will be drawn to the suspense aspect of the story, "but they'll also be given an inside look into what it's like to be president," according to The Washington Post.

The former president has written several nonfiction books, including "My Life," according to Publishers Weekly.

Fiction works by former presidents are rare. Jimmy Carter published "The Hornet's Nest," a historical novel, in 2003. Harry Truman's daughter Margaret Truman wrote a mystery series, "Capital Crime," The Post reported.
