S&S wins Vinnie story

Simon & Schuster has bought UK and Commonwealth rights in the autobiography of actor and former footballer, Vinnie Jones.
 
Executive Director, Kerr McRae, acquired the rights from Simon Dent at Roar Global Sports, and Carly Cook will publish the autobiography on the main non-fiction list in autumn 2013.
 
McRae said: “We are delighted to be working with Vinnie, he have a unique story to tell. The local lad who won the FA Cup and went on to become a Brit Film Icon and Hollywood movie star—from touchline tackles to tinsel town, this will be one hell of a ride!”
 
Vinnie Jones said: “I am delighted to be publishing my book with Simon & Schuster. It will be 100% straight about my colourful years—the ups and downs, the footballing, the scrapes, the films and life in LA—it will all be there, no hold barred.”
