LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Grammy Award-winning singer Linda Ronstadt will release a memoir in 2013 called "Heart Like a Wheel," borrowing the title of one of her albums, her publisher said on Thursday.

The book, to be published by New York-based Simon & Schuster, will describe Ronstadt's rise to fame and career.

Her life story includes winning 10 Grammy awards and proving herself in a variety of musical styles from rock to opera. She also dated California Governor Jerry Brown, back when he first led the state in the 1970s.

The 65 year-old Ronstadt has sold over 100 million albums worldwide, Simon & Schuster said.

The Arizona-born singer's 1974 album "Heart Like a Wheel" is one of her most popular releases, and her hit songs include "Desperado" and "Different Drum."
