Actor Rob Lowe is all set to pen a new tome about love, sex and marriage.

The' West Wing' star had published his memoir, 'Stories I Only Tell My Friends', earlier this year and the book went on to win critical acclaim on the New York Times bestseller list.

Now Lowe is planning to capitalise on his newfound success as an author by signing a deal with publisher Simon and Schuster for Love Life, a novel which would focus on his own experiences and observations.

Jonathan Karp, a representative for the company, released a statement in which he said that Lowe's second book will prove that he is a good author.

"The first book proved that Rob Lowe is a great storyteller. The second book will prove that he can write about anything and continue to captivate readers," the Daily Express quoted the statement. Love Life is set for a 2013 release.
