Lynne Spears will have no shortage of juicy material as she pens her personal tell-all of raising two famous daughters.

Having only recently reconciled with troubled popstar Britney, 26, Spears – also mom to actress Jamie Lynn, 16 – has inked a book deal with publisher Thomas Nelson, according to Publishers Marketplace.

Publishers Marketplace describes the book as “Lynne Spears’s personal story of raising high-profile children while coming from a low-profile Louisiana community.” The book is set to be published in spring 2008.

Thomas Nelson also publishes Bibles, inspirational (Christian) books and some celebrities’ work including Bill Cosby, according to, who first reported the deal.

Lynne and Britney had a falling out back in June, when Britney delivered an upsetting letter to her mother following months of erratic behavior and a brief stay in rehab.
