Mitch Winehouse to write Amy Winehouse memoirs

Amy Winehouse's father Mitch has announced that he is going to write a memoir about his daughter's life.

The book, which will be called Amy, My Daughter, will be released next year after Mitch signed a deal with Harper Collins. All profits from the book will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which aims to help addicts get proper treatment for their habits. After announcing the book, Winehouse Snr said that he hoped it would help him come to terms with his daughter's death.

'I feel that I need to write this book to tell the true story of Amy and to help with my personal recovery,' he said. 'I also want to raise as much money as possible for Amy's foundation, so all proceeds from the book will go directly to help children who are disadvantaged through illness and substance addiction.

'I believe that through Amy's music, her foundation, and this book, her name will live forever.'
