Lohan, 27, plans to pen a "deeply personal memoir" using the many journals she has kept over the years, an unnamed source told the entertainment news outlet.
E! also said about 10 publishers are talking to Lohan about the project.
Although Lohan enjoyed tremendous early success in the films "The Parent Trap," "Freaky Friday" and "Mean Girls," her acting career has been overshadowed in recent years by her brushes with the law and battles with drug and alcohol addiction. She is currently filming a reality show about life after rehab to air on the Oprah Winfrey Network next year.
