Richards to pen down `inspiring` autobiography

London: Former Bond girl Denise Richards is set to release an autobiography - "a heartfelt, honest book" - which will be an inspiration for others.

The actor will reveal her journey from a small town in Illinois to Hollywood, her tumultuous marriage and divorce from Charlie Sheen and life as a single mum to daughters Sam J. Sheen, 6, and Lola Rose Sheen, 5.

"I wanted to write a heartfelt, honest book that would be a source of hope for others going through difficult times," quoted Richards as saying.

The memoir, currently untitled, is expected to release in July next year.
