Reality TV star Nicole Richie is branching out into the literary world.

The SIMPLE LIFE babe is still working on her eagerly anticipated album, as well as writing two novels.

Richie, daughter of soul star Lionel Richie, enthuses, "I'm working on two novels for Judith Regan at HARPERCOLLINS, and also my album."

Her first book ROCK AND ROYALTY comes out later this year (05).
