(New York, NY) – Atria Books announced today that it has acquired a memoir from actress Maitland Ward, to be published in 2022. Ward’s debut, titled, “My Escape From Hollywood: Why I Left to Become a Porn Star” is a steamy, no-holds-barred memoir chronicling everything from her days on the classic soap “The Bold and The Beautiful,” to her stint on popular ABC/Disney sitcom “Boy Meets World,” to her meteoric rise to porn stardom, and why she decided to kiss mainstream Hollywood goodbye.
“This is one of the proudest moments of my career,” says Ward. “I’m so thrilled that I get to share my life and story in such a unique and impactful way. I am beyond grateful to Simon & Schuster and Atria books for having belief in my writing and my voice”.
“Maitland’s witty, incisive voice drew all of us in from the first page,” says senior editor, Michelle Herrera Mulligan. “Her rare perspective on the sexism she experienced first-hand in Hollywood, and the liberation she’s found in women-produced adult entertainment, will inspire, shock, and inform a generation eager to learn her story.”
Known for her roles as Rachel on “Boy Meets World” and Brittany in “White Chicks,” Maitland Ward has had a long career in front of the camera. Not wanting to be typecast as a sweet and innocent girl, she broke into the cosplay world and found a passion for role-play.
Maitland entered the adult industry in 2019 as the new face of Deeper.com, a high-end XXX site. In her first year of porn, she won Best Supporting Actress at the 2020 AVN Awards. Maitland won two additional AVN Awards in 2021, including Best Leading Actress for the film “Muse.”
Ward has built an impressive social media following of over two million, not including her thousands of OnlyFans subscribers. She is currently celebrating the achievement of 700,000 OnlyFans Likes.
World English rights were acquired by Senior Editor Michelle Herrera Mulligan from Stephanie Kim at New Leaf Literary & Media.
