Stacey Abrams has book deal to write two political thrillers

She recently released a legal thriller, 'While Justice Sleeps.'

ATLANTA — Nearly 20 years after self-publishing her first novels, Stacey Abrams is hitting full stride as a writer. 

The voting rights activist, grassroots organizer and former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate has a deal for two political thrillers. Doubleday and Anchor Books announced the deal Thursday.

The new novels will bring back the intrepid law clerk Avery Keene from her recently released legal thriller, “While Justice Sleeps,” which came out last week and is already a New York Times bestseller with more than 100,000 copies in print. 

Earlier this month, Berkley announced it was reissuing a trilogy of romance novels Abrams self-published in the early 2000s.

Abrams is considered the clear front-runner to again be the Democratic nominee in next year's race for governor if she decides to run. To this point, though, she has not confirmed if she will indeed mount a campaign or not.
