Sen. Scott Brown has finalized a book deal with HarperCollins.

(CNN) – Sen. Scott Brown will reflect on “his family background, his early career and his ascent to the office of Massachusetts senator” in a new memoir, the publisher HarperCollins announced Wednesday.

Brown’s office said last month that the Republican star was in the process of landing a book deal and had hired Washington attorney Bob Barnett to help navigate the process.

HarperCollins, which also published former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s best-selling memoir “Going Rogue,” acquired the rights to the Brown book and will publish it in early 2011. The publisher called Brown’s win in January’s Massachusetts special Senate election “one of the biggest political coups of the decade.”

“I am humbled to have the opportunity to share my personal story in hopes to inform, encourage and inspire others,” Brown said in a statement.

The publisher said Brown will submit his deal to the Senate Ethics Committee for approval.

“Scott Brown’s remarkable rise to the US Senate is merely one part of a life spent fighting for the values he believes in,” said HarperCollins Senior Vice President Jonathan Burnham. “His own story is one of extraordinary courage, persistence, and hope – it is full of surprises and will make for a vitally important book that will inspire others to follow Senator Brown’s footsteps.”
