NEW YORK - Following other presidential candidates whose books have become a rite of passage to the White House, Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann is writing a memoir to be published on Nov. 21, her publisher said on Tuesday.

Bachmann, the Tea Party favorite and Republican White House hopeful, will address her personal background -- including her roles as a tax attorney, wife, mother and foster mother -- as well as her leap into politics and her "vision for America's future," said a statement from Sentinel, a Penguin imprint.

"This book will help to share my enthusiasm for an energized, pro-growth economy, and the life experiences that inform my optimism for the American people and for American greatness," Bachmann said in the statement.

Bachmann is among the top three candidates seen to have a chance of winning the Republican nomination to take on President Obama next year.
