Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is to join the ranks of politicians-turned-authors with a new book describing his rise from preacher's son to potential presidential candidate.
The Republican is working with Marc Thiessen, a former speechwriter for President George W. Bush, the National Review reports
The book does not yet have a title, but is expected to focus on Walker's experience as governor, along with autobiographical stories.

A Wisconsin Republican familiar with the project told the Review, "I think Scott wants to do more to tell his story. Everybody knows about what he's done, but not everybody knows about him. This book will be something that colors in the picture."
Walker, 45, was elected governor in 2010, but was propelled to the national stage when he led a campaign to curb collective bargaining rights for public employees in the Badger State and then successfully staved off a recall.
He has been widely tipped to be one of the frontrunners for the Republican nomination for the presidency in 2016.
