Geri Horner Announces New Series of Children’s Adventure Books | Entertainment



Geri Horner is releasing a new series of children’s adventure books.

The Spice Girls star – known as Geri Halliwell before marrying Christian Horner in 2015 – is following up on the success of her 2008 Ugenia Lavender books with a new collection.

Geri has signed a two-book deal with Scholastic UK and Penguin Young Reader’s Philomel Books in the US, and the first book in the series – titled “Rosie Frost and the Falcon Queen” – is due out in the fall of 2023.

The story will follow an orphan named Rosie Frost who is sent to a mysterious island, home to both extraordinary teenagers and endangered species.

In a statement, the 50-year-old star said: “Rosie Frost has lived in my heart for a long time and now is a great time to introduce her to the world.

“I hope her strength in the face of adversity and her path to self-confidence will inspire young readers everywhere to find their own strength and power in the face of the challenges in their own lives.”

Meanwhile, Scholastic UK editor Linas Alsenas thinks the book will ‘reveal a whole new dimension of Geri Halliwell-Horner’s extraordinary imagination’ with a combination of ‘story, mystery, music and of adventure”.

Alsenas added, “Rosie Frost is the determined, big-hearted hero we all need, and her journey of discovery on Bloodstone Island is filled with surprises that will have fans coming back for more.”

News of Geri’s new book comes as Spice Girls fans hope the group – including bandmates Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham – will reunite for Glastonbury next summer.

Emma recently said, “I hope so! Can I be real? Nobody asked us! I also read it this week and said, ‘Oh, we asked them. We are far enough.”

“We’ve all been on the phone like…nobody’s asked us!”
