Stormy Daniels is writing her autobiography, which will include details of her alleged affair with President Trump.

Full Disclosure will be published on October 2 and, according to the publishers St Martin's Press, it will chart her journey "from a rough childhood in Louisiana onto the national stage, and the events that led to the nondisclosure agreement and the behind-the-scenes attempts to intimidate her".

Stormy, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, alleges she had an affair with Trump, which began in 2006, and that she was paid $130,000 hush money as part of a non-disclosure agreement, signed before the 2016 election.

Trump has denied ever having had an affair with the actress.

His former attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty in August to campaign violations regarding the hush money payment. Cohen claims Trump instructed him to pay off Daniels and another woman. 

Trump said he was not aware of the payments until after they had been made.

Daniels said she wrote the book to tell the full story of the alleged affair and the court case as she felt she had not had the opportunity to properly address them in interviews.

“Everybody knows that a lot of the ‘60 Minutes’ [interview] was cut down for time and there are things that I said in my interview that I really wanted people to know that are very important to me that I didn’t get to say,” Daniels told The View.

The adult film star's attorney, Michael Avenatti, told ABC's The View on Wednesday that it will be "three long weeks before the book comes out for Donald Trump".
