HarperCollins announced Thursday that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has chosen the editor of an Evangelical magazine to help write her memoir.

Lynn Vincent is the features editor for WORLD magazine.

"Lynn has been WORLD's best writer of action stories ranging from shots fired in a Texas church to raging fires on California hillsides," said WORLD Editor in Chief Marvin Olasky. "She combines guts and grace, as does Sarah Palin, so the book should be outstanding."

Vincent co-wrote the book "Donkey Cons: Sex, Crime, and Corruption in the Democratic Party" with conservative author Robert Stacy McCain. She collaborated on the memoirs of art dealer Ron Hall, scandalized Christian singer Michael English, former terrorist Kamal Saleem, and Delta Force veteran Jerry Boykin.

Palin spoke to the Associated Press last week after the bookdeal was announced:

"There's been so much written about and spoken about in the mainstream media and in the anonymous blogosphere world, that this will be a wonderful, refreshing chance for me to get to tell my story, that a lot of people have asked about, unfiltered."

Palin's memoir will be co-released by HarperCollins and Zondervan, HarperCollins's Christian market publishing arm.
