Gillian Anderson is turning her hand to penning her debut novel.
The former X-Files star has signed a deal with publisher Simon and Schuster to write a series of adventure books, The Hollywood Reporter said.
The first volume of the EarthEnd Saga series, to be co-written with Jeff Rovin, will be entitled A Vision Of Fire.
"This is a very exciting endeavour, and I'm thrilled that Simon and Schuster has taken us under their wing," said The Fall star Gillian in a statement announcing the deal.
"Together, we will make the most of what I hope will be a compelling series of adventures."
