London: British pop star Tulisa Contostavlos is foraying into writing after signing a deal to write her first novel.

The 24-year-old released her autobiography, Honest, My Story So Far, recently and she is now working on a new fiction book, reports a website.

Contostavlos reveals the story will be inspired by her real life, telling British newspaper The Daily Star, "I`m writing a novel. Let`s say there are elements of the book based on real-life characters I know... It`s exciting for me. It`s something that I wanted to do with the same publishers as my autobiography.

"I do a lot of reading. I like crime novels and my number one author is Martina Cole,” she added.
