Tyra Banks writing fantasy books

Tyra Banks is to write a series of fantasy books.

The former catwalk queen - who hosts hit modelling competition America's Next Top Model and has her own chat show - has agreed to a three-book deal with Delacorte Press for a fantasy series for young people.

It's about a girl trying to keep up with the beauty game at an elite school for supermodels, or Intoxibellas.

Delacorte said 36-year-old Tyra's first novel, Modelland, is due to be released in the summer of 2011.

Delacorte is an imprint of Random House Children's Books.
