Hosting two hit shows (The Tyra Show, America's Next Top Model) makes Tyra Banks one very busy -- and very fierce -- woman. But with the her daytime show coming to a close, the former supermodel is filling her time with a new project: writing her debut fiction novel, Modelland!
Banks, 36, explained the (oddly spelled) book on her website Tyra.com, announcing, "I said I was going to do it, and here it is! It's my novel called Modelland (pronounced "Model Land") that takes you to a fantastical place you've never seen, or heard about, or read about before...Where dreams come true and life can change in the blink of a smoky eye."
Banks' three-book deal with Random House does not yet have a release date for the debut fiction publication, People reports, but the supermodel is looking forward to it nonetheless.
Banks -- who released a self-help book called Tyra's Beauty, Inside and Out published in 1998 -- added, "Modelland has always been a part of my mind and my heart. I'm excited that you'll be able to read about this magical world that's been living in my dreams for so many years." Welcome to author-land, Tyra!
