Former child stars Tia and Tamera Mowry are set to become literary heroines after announcing plans to release a series of young adult novels.

The first book from the Twintuition series, Double Vision, will centre on twin sisters who battle the supernatural after moving to a new town with their mother.

The actresses tell, "As avid readers, we couldn't be more thrilled to be working with HarperCollins on this book series. We are huge fans of supernatural fiction and have always wanted to write a book that tweens can relate to. This project gives us a chance to combine both interests.

"We are always trying to find ways to connect with our fans who have grown up with us throughout the years, as well as our new ones. Being moms, we know how important reading is to our children. And we can't wait to share the final product with everyone."

Double Vision will hit bookstores on 21 April (15).
