Ex-Palin Aide Wallace to Write Novel

Feb 4, 2010 7:25pm

ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: Palin-tologists are going to get some fresh source material.Nicolle Wallace, the former White House communications director who famously clashed with Sarah Palin while working as a senior adviser to the McCain-Palin campaign, has signed on to write a novel that “follows the first female President of the United States, Charlotte Kramer, and her staff as they take on dangerous threats from abroad and within her very own cabinet.”The novel, set to be published in October, will be titled “Eighteen Acres,” based on a term sometimes used to describe the White House complex, according to a press release to be released tomorrow by the publishers, Atria Books.”Heroines in woman’s fiction typically struggle with the weight of the world on their shoulders,” Emily Bestler, vice president and executive editorial director of Atria, says in the news release, a copy of which was provided to ABC News.”Nicole Wallace has created a character in which that can be said literally. Forget everything you know about the genre. Whatever family, friend or workplace drama we’ve read about in the past becomes magnified tenfold when you’re the nation’s first female president.”The novel, of course, is a work of fiction; Wallace has labeled Palin’s memoir (which includes unflattering depictions of advice she offered to the vice-presidential candidate) with a similar description.
