Some celebrities come across as very relatable and Octavia Spencer is one of those celebrities. If you follow the Octavia Spencer Fan Page then you may be familiar with her Facebook notes. There’s no topic that The Help actress is afraid to address. She’s authored articles about weight, bullying and more on her fan page.
Now she’s taking her writing skills away from Facebook and placing them in the palm of your hands. According to Yahoo Finance, Spencer has a deal with Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers for a pair of detective novels for middle school students. Her first book, “Randi Rhodes, Ninja Detective: The Case of the Time-Capsule Bandit,” will come out next fall.
Like many of us, Octavia Spencer was inspired by mystery series Nancy Drew and Encyclopedia Brown and she wants to inspire kids they way those books inspired her.
