A can't-miss rung on the ladder to celebrity status in Washington: Newly seated Sen. Scott Brown will write a book about his life leading up to his upset election to succeed the late Sen. Edward Kennedy.

Brown spokeswoman Gail Gitcho said Wednesday the Massachusetts Republican hopes to provide "insight and encouragement" to others and to ensure the record is "complete and accurate." She said that part of the book's proceeds will go to charity.

Gitcho said there was no word yet on the timing of the book or a publisher. She said Brown will work with a collaborator on the book and considers his Senate duties his first priority.

Brown's surprise victory in the special election to replace Kennedy ended the Senate Democratic supermajority.
