Mitch Winehouse, the father of recently deceased singing star Amy Winehouse, has signed a deal to write "Amy: My Daughter."
Lisa Sharkey, senior vp at Harper Collins, announced the book deal Monday. It Books, Harper Collin's celebrity-themed imprint, will publish the book in North America and Harper Non-fiction will publish in the United Kingdom. The book will be released sometime during summer 2012.
Winehouse, the British singer-songwriter with the vintage husky soul sound and the very modern scandal-a-day tabloid image, was found dead in her London apartment July 23. She was 27.
