Tulisa is working on a novel based on her own rags to riches story.
The X Factor judge and N-Dubz singer, who grew up on a tough north London housing estate, says she is penning a story about a girl from a poor background who finds fame in show business.
"I've been writing a book, this isn't just me trying to milk it, for once, trust me," she told You magazine.
"When I was younger the one thing I was good at was writing stories," Tulisa added.
"So I'd love to take my experience from the council estate and show what the world is like.
"I'm fully involved in the writing, I've story-boarded the whole thing, done a good few pages."
