Geri Halliwell: Author?

Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell has a story to tell, and she plans to with a book that she's been working on for a number of years.

"I've been writing a book since I was about 16 and I think there's a writer in [me]," Halliwell told the MTV Radio Network recently. However, those hoping that the tome will be a Spice Girls tell-all will be sorely disappointed.

"This story is more of a 21st Century folktale. The dressing happens to be my life, but it's about chasing rainbows, getting your pot of gold, and how does that feel." [RealVideo]

There's no word when (or if) Geri's story will make it to bookstores, but in the event that it does, Geri promises the tale will be deeply honest, but quite funny.

While her career as an author still faces long odds, Geri's music career is well on track. Halliwell's solo debut, "Schizophonic," hits stores on June 14, and she may support the album

with a tour this fall.
