Ida Mae Astute/ABC(NEW YORK) — ABC’s Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts will write a memoir about her recent experience battling a rare blood disorder.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 52-year-old veteran anchor is working on the currently untitled book, which will be published by Grand Central Publishing in April 2014.

“I am humbled that many have an interest, and draw strength from my on-going journey,” Roberts said in a statement. “I’m grateful for the prayers and well wishes of so many people. I’m thrilled that [publisher] Jamie Raab and Grand Central Publishing will help me tell my story.”

This will be Roberts’ second book. In 2007, From the Heart, 7 Rules to Live By, was published. The inspirational book later became a New York Times best-seller.

Roberts left the GMA anchor desk for five months after she underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat the blood disorder.  She returned last February.
