Insecure star Yvonne Orji is now an author.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed Thursday that Orji has signed a book deal with Flatiron Books, which will release her upcoming book Bamboozled by Jesus: How God Tricked Me Into the Life of My Dreams (and 20 Lessons I Learned Along the Way).

The publication adds that the book will be part-memoir and part-advice guide with Orji sharing life lessons learned from her own experience with religion and family.

Her book deal is another win for the actress, whose year has included headlining the New York Comedy Festival, developing her semi-autobiographical series, First Gen, and starring alongside Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart in Night School.

No release date has been announced for Orji’s book, but we’ll be running to pick up a copy once it drops.
