Tulisa Contostavlos has signed a three-book deal to write an autobiography and two novels.
The X Factor judge will write the three books for Headline Publishing Group, with the release for her autobiography to be this year, and the novels to follow in 2013 and 2014.
The 23-year-old singer said:
"I'm really excited to start work on these books. Having my novels published is a dream come true for me.
"I'm also looking forward to sharing my life story so far; I've got lots to tell. Headline is the perfect place for me to build my writing career."
Deputy Publishing Director at Headline, Sarah Emsley said:
"Tulisa is an incredibly talented writer and musician and, as her mentoring of Little Mix on this year's X Factor has shown, she is an inspiration for young women everywhere.
"Aged only 23 she has battled through a tough childhood and difficult personal relationships whilst acting as the sole carer for her mother, to become an incredibly successful recording artist.
"Despite leaving school without sitting her GCSEs, she now has a string of MOBO Awards to her name, plus three platinum selling albums and a MIND-award winning documentary.
"Tulisa's story has incredible breadth and depth for someone so young, and we are absolutely thrilled that she has chosen Headline to be her publisher."
It has yet to be announced if Tulisa will return to the X Factor for the next series.
