ATLANTA (AP) — Jane Fonda has written workout guides and a cookbook for healthy living. Now she's turning to a new topic: herself.

The actress has signed a deal with Random House to write a memoir, said Tom Perry, a spokesman for the New York publisher.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Perry would not say exactly what Fonda plans to write about; only that the book will be an informal collection of anecdotes rather than a formal autobiography.

Fonda, an Atlanta resident who is separated from husband Ted Turner, will not use a ghost writer, Perry told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution for Monday's editions. ``She intends to write this herself,'' he said.

Perry said the book likely is at least two years away from publication.
