Supergirl star Nicole Maines has announced she will be writing a memoir! The actress and activist has already been the subject of the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller Becoming Nicole: The Transformation of an American Family by Amy Ellis Nutt, but this time Maines will be writing her own story. In a statement to Publisher’s Weekly, Dial Press (a division of Random House) stated the book will
correct some of the most insidious messaging absorbed by queer kids and all young women—from the idea that any one thing can (or should) ever really “fix” you to wondering what’s wrong with you when things don’t always feel better—by providing an intimate look at her life and all the lessons she’s learned along the way.
Maines is best known for her role as Nia Nal/Dreamer on Supergirl, the first transgender superhero on television. She also recently appeared in the vampire film Bit, which is available now on-demand.

I was going to wait until Monday to share this, but I guess the cat’s out of the bag! YES! I’m working on a new memoir with @randomhouse and it’s going to be off the hook! Not sure what to call it. What about “The Ins and Outs of a Gender Reveal Fire?” https://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/industry-news/book-deals/article/84383-book-deals-week-of-september-21-2020.html 📸: @deidhra
