Tyra BanksIt's official, Tyra Banks is now a writer!

The former model just announced she's writing a new fantasy novel called "Modelland" ... and it's part of a three book series.

According to her website, "The story follows a teen girl and her friends who find themselves magically transported to Modelland."

Banks says Modelland is a make-believe place "where 'Intoxibellas' are trained.  Intoxibellas are drop-dead beautiful, kick-butt fierce and, yeah, maybe they have some powers too."

No word yet on when the series will launch.
