London singer and X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos is set to tell-all in an autobiography later this year.
The 23-year-old star is also set to release two novels in 2013 and 2014 as part of a book deal with publisher Headline.
She 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.”
The N-Dubz star is expected to write about her difficult childhood in Camden, north London, where she was a carer for her mother who struggled with mental illness.
Deputy publishing director 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.
“On top of all of this, she has won her very first X Factor, mentoring Little Mix into the top slot as the first ever girl group to win the series.
“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.”
