Former Vice President Dick Cheney has a book deal with a conservative imprint at Simon & Schuster.

The memoir by Cheney, widely considered the most powerful vice president in history, is expected to be published in Spring 2011, a few months after President George W. Bush's book comes out. Cheney's work is currently untitled and will cover his long career in government, from chief of staff under President Ford to vice president under Bush.

Known for his secrecy while in the Bush administration, Cheney has made clear for months that he was planning a book. He is working on it from his home outside of Washington, D.C., with the assistance of his daughter, Liz Cheney.
