NEW YORK, N.Y. - A member of folk music royalty, singer-songwriter Martha Wainwright, is working on a memoir.

Wainwright has a deal with Flatiron Books for "Stories I Might Regret Telling You," scheduled to come out in early 2016. Wainwright is the daughter of musicians Loudon Wainwright III and the late Kate McGarrigle, and the sister of Rufus Wainwright.

Flatiron, an imprint of Macmillan, announced Friday that the book will be an intimate story, covering such topics as her famous family, her "strange love affairs" and dabbling with drugs and alcohol.

The 37-year-old Wainwright has released several albums, including "Come Home to Mama" and "Martha Wainwright."
