New York - A biography of former American Idol judge Simon Cowell is coming soon.

Ballantine Books announced on Thursday that it will publish Tom Bower's Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell around March.

According to Ballantine, an imprint of Random House, Bower has had "hundreds of hours" of access to Cowell. The book will also include "direct contributions" from Cowell's friends and foes.

The acerbic Brit was a judge on Fox's American Idol for nine seasons. He left Idol to launch his British-born hit series The X Factor in the US.

Bower has written 19 books, including biographies of former British prime minister Gordon Brown and media mogul Conrad Black.
