NEW YORK (AP) -- A sister of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has a two-book deal.

HarperCollins announced Wednesday that Randi Zuckerberg, a social media executive and entrepreneur who left Facebook in 2011, plans a memoir/lifestyle book titled “Dot Complicated” and a children’s story.

“Dot Complicated,” scheduled for release Nov. 5, will combine personal and professional insights for the digital age, from Zuckerberg’s years as Facebook’s marketing director to becoming a mother in 2011. “Dot Complicated” also is the name of her online newsletter.

Zuckerberg said in a statement technology has changed almost every part of people’s lives, resulting in a digital society “that feels a lot like the wild, wild west.”

“I am thrilled to be working with HarperCollins to share some of my own crazy experiences on the front lines of social media and to inspire people of all ages to embrace technology, as well as the new set of social norms that come along with it,” she said.

Zuckerberg, who has founded her own Zuckerberg Media company, is known in part for opposing anonymity online, saying it enables cyberbullying. Her brother co-founded Facebook in his Harvard University dorm room in 2004, and his net worth is estimated at $9.4 billion.
