Children's book writer Geri Halliwell

Geri Halliwell has written a series of children's books inspired by ex-Spice Girls bandmate Victoria Beckham. Geri's tales feature a nine-year-old girl who bears a striking resemblance to her creator, as well as a princess called Posh Vatoria.The series follows a school girl called Ugenia Lavender, who shares Geri's red hair and striking blue eyes, and has a talent for solving mysteries. She describes Ugenia as "flawed, demanding and obnoxious" but adds that she"cares about the world she lives in". Posh Vatoria, created with Victoria's blessing, intimidates the flame-haired heroine in one story by arriving at a party in a limousine. Geri said: "She was very flattered and I hope she is going to read the books to her boys. I have only cast people if it is authentic to the story. Idon't know if the other Spice Girls will be in there."Geri, 34, started writing the book while pregnant with 11-month-old daughter Bluebell Madonna. Her decision to follow the path of other star children's authors Madonna and Will Smith doesn't signal the end of Geri's music career though. She plans to record a theme song in conjunction with her books. Books will hit shelves each month, starting in May 2008, up until October.
