Kate Moss is planning to write a novel.

The supermodel - who is also set to pen her autobiography - is teaming up with her friend, former Sleeper singer-turned-novelist Louise Wener, when she ends her catwalk career.

The book is expected to be based on a young female model's life as she rises from obscurity to dominate the fashion world.

A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Kate has been considering how she will occupy her time when the modelling work dries up.

"Writing a novel is something she has considered before. With the help of a ghost writer like Louise, she is convinced she could come up with a commercially successful product that could be a great money-spinner.

"She knows the modelling world inside out and all the scandal behind the scenes."

This is not the first book-based project Kate has been considered.

Earlier this year, it was claimed she was planning to launch her own cookbook after treating boyfriend Jamie Hince to a series of homemade meals.

A source said: "She's buzzing about the idea of being the first supermodel to release a cookbook.

"Her friend Davinia Taylor has helping her and Kate is always on the phone to her pals for tips."

It was recently revealed the 35-year-old British beauty will receive around £1 million when she releases her autobiography through Virgin Books.

Richard Branson, who owns a 10 per cent stake in the company said: "It's going to make an exciting read."

The tome is expected to reveal intimate details about Moss' drug abuse, her break-up from troubled rocker Pete Doherty and tackle the recent allegations that she cheated on current boyfriend Jamie with Eve Berlin from American band Living Things last year.
