Model Tyra Banks Becomes a Fiction Book Author

Tyra-BanksSupermodel and television host Tyra Banks will try to add a new skill in her list of achievements. She has agreed a deal to write a series of novels concentrated in the world of, what else could it be but, modeling.

Banks, 36, will be authoring a three-book series. The first one, entitled Modelland, is expected to be released by summer next year.

Following the announcement made by her publishers, Random House, Tuesday, May 11, the model declared in her website the following statement: “It’s [the books] for all the girls and guys who want a lot more FANTASY in their lives … and some fierceness and magic, romance and mystery, crazy and wild adventures, and yeah, some danger too.”

This is not the first time, however, that Banks wrote a book. In 1998 she published a how-to make-up book entitled Tyra’s Beauty, Inside and Out.

She is the host of her own shows, Daytime Emmy Award Winner The Tyra Banks Show and reality competition America’s Next Top Model. She previously had acting credits with roles in films like Coyote Ugly and in television when she made guest appearances in Felicity, American Dreams and Gossip Girl.
