LOS ANGELES, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- Patrick Swayze's publicist has confirmed to Usmagazine.com the Hollywood actor and his wife, Lisa, are working on a memoir.

Swayze taped his new TV drama "The Beast" last year while undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer. The 56-year-old actor has been battling the disease for about a year.

His representative said the "Ghost" and "Dirty Dancing" star and his spouse of 33 years are collaborating on a book about his life and career.

The publicist said the volume will not be an inspirational-type, contrary to reports stating otherwise, and its release date is not yet clear.
