Tabitha Brown is publishing an inspirational book and a cookbook

I know vegan social media star Tabitha Brown from her posts that go viral on Twitter. She has a soothing voice and her personality is mesmerizing. You just want her to talk you to sleep every night. I saw her in a brief Buzzfeed video once and was almost convinced to go vegan she’s so charming. I expected to hear news that Tabitha was getting her own show, maybe on Netflix, but she has a couple of books coming out soon. She’s signed a deal with William Morrow and will be releasing an inspirational book this fall followed by a cookbook.

Brown is writing an inspirational book, Feeding the Soul (Because It’s My Business), PEOPLE can reveal exclusively. The new book will be published by William Morrow on Sept. 28 — and her own cookbook will follow.

“I literally wake up and pinch myself at the thought of my life today versus four years ago! Then I hear my daddy’s voice in my ear, saying, ‘You only live once, but if you live it right, once is enough,’ ” the mom of three, 42, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “I couldn’t agree more! Living in my truth is enough, and it’s the best feeling ever.”

“Sharing that with the world in my book is such a blessing,” she continues, “and my hope is that readers will take the same feeling away after reading it.”

Brown pursued acting for years, while also battling undiagnosed chronic autoimmune pain. Her life began to change when she switched to a plant-based diet — and even more after she went viral on Facebook with her funny review of the Whole Foods TTLA sandwich (tempeh bacon, tomato, lettuce, avocado).

Now, she has millions of followers on different social media platforms, who are captivated by her warm personality and the approachable way she makes vegan versions of the Southern dishes she grew up on.

“Our life is our business, and if we don’t take care of it, we can go out of business! So I thought maybe I could share a few moments that I almost went out of business — but came back stronger than ever before,” she says of the book.

I would love to read her book! She has the kind of voice that you can hear in your head when you read. She has such a lovely way of phrasing things and I always feel better about myself and calmer after watching her.

While Tabitha isn’t getting her own show just yet, we can see her on TV in The Chi, created by Lena Waithe, on Showtime! She’s going to play a recurring character, an interior designer, on the fourth season, which is filming now. Apparently Tabitha has acted for years before her Internet fame. I haven’t seen this show yet but it’s very well reviewed and is now on my list.

How gorgeous are she and her husband?
