Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen had quite a turbulent marriage--and now Richards is getting ready to write about it. The actress is penning a memoir, reports.

In an interview with RadarOnline, Richards reveals why she's writing the book and why she thinks it will help others.

"I get into the good stuff about my marriage, because people have only read the rotten stuff," she said, referring to her marriage to Hollywood bad boy, Sheen. "So, you know, there was a beautiful love story between he and I and then it went the way it went."

She continued: "But I talk more about how I felt during that time, because I think a lot of women can relate to that going through a divorce and custody and being a single parent, trying to work and all that stuff."
