Cody Simpson to publish autobiography

Artist News

Cody Simpson

Well, this is good news for my collection of hastily-produced pop autobiographies (pride of place: Vanilla Ice’s ‘Ice By Ice’ and Darius’ ‘Sink Or Swim: My Story’), Cody Simpson is going to publish the first volume of his life story. HarperCollins will publish the sixteen year old singer’s first book, ‘Welcome To Paradise: My Journey’ on 22 Oct.

Says Simpson: “It’s incredibly exciting for me to be partnering with HarperCollins to tell my story. I hope that my journey inspires kids from all around the world to pursue their passions and work hard for their dreams”.

Echoing similar sentiments, Harper Non-Fiction Publishing Director Anna Valentine added: “Cody Simpson is one of the most exciting up-and-coming artists of his generation and I’m thrilled to welcome him to HarperCollins. Having toured the world with Justin Bieber, Cody has thrilled millions of teenage fans with his chart-topping music – and I’m excited for him to do the same with his debut book”.

I’m not sure The Kids read any more, do they? Oh well, there might be an audio-book version.
