os Angeles, Feb 7 () WWE star John Cena is all set to debut as an author with the release of a new line of children's stories.

"With 'Elbow Grease' and the books to follow, I want to offer kids a fun and engaging way to learn about the power of ambition, dedication, and heart.

"These concepts have been transformative in my life, from my childhood up to now, and it's so important to me to pass the positivity on and help our youngest generation see that right mindset is key to achievement," Cena said in a statement.

The book is illustrated by Howard McWilliam and releases on October 9.
