Hilary Duff is more than just a actress — the former Disney star is adding author to her repertoire. Hilary has landed a book deal with Simon & Schuster, the publishing house confirmed today. What genre will Lizzie Maguire try her hand at?

The 22-year-old starlet will be writing young adult novels, E! News reports, with the first in her series, Elixir, set for release on Oct. 12. The 416-page book will follow globe-trotting photojournalist Clea Raymond.

What a start!

Hilary does not plan to be a one hit wonder.  She will pen follow up the novel with a nonfiction book geared toward children dealing with divorce.

That book is due out in 2012.

NHL hunk Mike Comrie proposed to Hilary last month while the couple was vacationing in Hawaii.
