CUPERTINO (CBS SF) – Chrisann Brennan, the high school girlfriend of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, has reached a deal to with St. Martin’s Press to publish the story of her life and relationship with the Silicon Valley icon, according to the New York Times.
Brennan and Jobs met in 1972 while attending Homestead High School in Cupertino and eventually lived together. The on-and-off relationship eventually led to the 1978 birth of daughter Lisa, for whom an early Apple computer was named.
Jobs initially denied paternity of Lisa for roughly two years, but the two would connect later in life, according to Jobs’ authorized biography.
St. Martin’s said Ms. Brennan’s memoir will delve into Apple’s founding, the couple’s relationship and “Jobs’s enormous appeal, energy and drive as well as his developing ambition and ruthlessness in business and personal dealings,” according to the Times.
