NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren already is the author or co-author of nine books, but she has a lot more to write about.

The Massachusetts Democrat is working on a book she plans to call "Rigged." During a brief telephone interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday, she said "Rigged" will be a "firsthand" account of how she has fought for the middle class. She will write about helping to set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and her 2012 senate campaign.

Warren expects to meet with publishers within the next several weeks and hopes "Rigged" will be available next year. She will be represented by Washington attorney Robert Barnett, whose other clients have included Sen. Edward M. Kennedy and the man Warren defeated last fall, former Sen. Scott Brown.
