Report: Valerie Plame Wilson To Author Suspense Books

Former CIA operative Valerie Plame Wilson is turning to fiction writing more than three years after publishing a memoir about her career.

The New York Times reports that Wilson has a book deal with Penguin Group USA for a series of international suspense novels. The newspaper says she will team up with mystery writer Sarah Lovett on the books, which will feature a fictional operative.

Wilson tells the Times she's frustrated by portrayals of female CIA agents in popular culture that emphasize their looks rather than their brains.

Wilson's 2007 memoir, "Fair Game," told the story of her CIA career and her 2003 outing that led to the indictment of Vice President Dick Cheney's top aide, I. Lewis Libby. Her first fiction book is due out next year.
