'Supermodel' Tyra Banks' turns bestselling author with 'Modelland'

   Oct 11, 7:41 pm

London, Oct 11 (ANI): Tyra Banks' debut fiction book, Modelland, has reached number two on the New York Times bestsellers list and number one on the Barnes and Noble charts.

The achievement certainly marks the advent of a journey from being a super model to a super author for Banks.

In a candid interview with New York Daily News, Banks revealed that books are "a work of fiction that honours my love of books and fantasy, and also lets me poke fun at things I've seen in the real world... many of the characters will be inspired by some of the models I've known, both nice and 'ice'," the Telegraph reported.

Rumours circulated last week that Tyra's debut book was to be turned into a film.

Of the rumours of film adaptation the model-turned-author said that she "would love to open up the Modelland casting to the world. I'm looking for an 'everygirl' to possibly play one of the characters in the story." (ANI)
