Text book by Wang & Salmon.
Enercalc Engineering Software.
Are you doing the concrete design and detailing?
The toe and heel of the footing are designed as cantilever beams.
If you are trying to proportion the footing, soil properties must be known.

Design the foundation as you would do for any foundation that has overturning.  Enercalc or RISA footing are two programs I use.  Just make it wide enough and long enough to resist the overturning, given an allowable soil value.  Reinforce the sides and end for cantilever action.  Make sure that you have stability.  1.5 times Dead load resisting moment has to be greater then the Overturning moment.

Check out Foundation Engineering Handbook by Joseph Bowles (excellent book). He has some formulas for checking overturning when you are outside the kern point
