(PoliticalLookout.com)- Hillary Clinton is known for bending the truth, so it’s perhaps unsurprising that the failed presidential candidate and former Secretary of State is working on penning her first thriller novel.
Reports this week revealed that the former first lady is a fan of mystery novels, and is teaming up with Louise Penny, an award-winning fiction author, to write a new novel titled “State of Terror.”
The book will focus on a novice Secretary of State working to find the source of a series of terror attacks. In the story, the president will have been inaugurated following “four years of American leadership that shrank from the world stage” – an obvious attack against former President Donald Trump who beat Clinton in 2016.
As if suffering years of investigations based on Hillary Clinton’s “Russiagate” fiction, that baselessly claimed the former president won the election with the help of the Kremlin, wasn’t enough…
I’m thrilled to be writing my first book of fiction with Louise Penny, one of my favorite authors and a dear friend. Get ready for some high-stakes diplomacy and treachery. https://t.co/f7yybDWjqz pic.twitter.com/St4BNwgBK0

Clinton claimed it was her “first work of fiction” but said that she was “drawing from some life experience.”

Will she ever give up her tirade against Trump?
The new terror novel will be released by both St. Martin’s Press and Simon & Schuster, and will be available on October 12.
On Tuesday, Penny issued a statement revealing her personal friendship with Clinton.
“When it was suggested my friend Hillary and I write a political thriller together, I could not say yes fast enough,” she said.
This new book would be the latest in a long line released by Clinton, with her most recent memoir, “What Happened,” detailing a list of excuses for why she didn’t win the 2016 presidential election.
Incredibly, Hillary isn’t the only Clinton who has dipped her toe into writing fiction. Former President Bill Clinton is also preparing to release his second book collaboration with James Patterson, a mystery novel writer. President Clinton released the cyber thriller novel “The President Is Missing” in June of 2018.
