Regan Books to Publish Kimora Lee Simmons

NEW YORK, June 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Judith Regan, Publisher and founder of Regan Books, today officially announced that she will publish the first book by celebrity entrepreneur Kimora Lee Simmons, creator of the chic fashion label Baby Phat by Kimora Lee Simmons.

The book, set for publication in February 2006, is a how-to lifestyle guide with inspiring and personal stories from the former model and mother of two who married a music mogul and built her own ultra successful lifestyle empire.

"I am excited to finally be able to write a book that advises, uplifts, and inspires women to live the best life they can, and I am pleased to be able to do so with Regan Books," states Kimora Lee Simmons.

"Kimora Lee Simmons is a stunningly beautiful woman with two stunningly beautiful children and an amazing husband. However, if you think she got there just by being beautiful and marrying well, wait till you read the real story behind this remarkable woman. This book reveals how she did it and how you can too, no matter what your circumstances are today. Creating opportunities is what her life is all about. She is a great inspiration and she has a great sense of humor as well. Beauty, brains, wit and drive -- she tells you how to develop and discover those things within yourself," says Regan.

Kimora Lee Simmons will also publish a children's book slated for late 2006 as part of the two-book deal with ReganBooks.

Simmons started the clothing label Baby Phat in 1999 and has since transformed the brand into a successful fashion/lifestyle empire which includes fragrance, jewelry, sneakers, and an exclusive diamond encrusted mobile phone. She is married to Def Jam Records founder Russell Simmons.

Judith Regan is the founder and CEO of ReganMedia, a multi media company comprised of books, television, film, and radio. ReganBooks has published a wide range of authors including award-winning-novelists Wally Lamb (I KNOW THIS MUCH IS TRUE) and Gregory Maguire (WICKED), as well as a list of high profile personalities including Sean Hannity (DELIVER US FROM EVIL), Bernie Mac (MAYBE YOU NEVER CRY AGAIN) and General Tommy Franks (AMERICAN SOLDIER).
