Garcelle Beauvais is adding another attribute to her awesome resume through a series of children's books. The newly minted author is planning to share life lessons through her "I Am" series. A statement released Monday says the "Franklin & Bash" star has signed an agreement with Stranger Comics for three books that will "address identity issues relevant to many children today." The first book, "I Am Mixed" with co-author Sebastian A. Jones, will hit stores this fall. It will tell of a brother and sister and their mixed ethnicities.

The Haiti-born actress and mother of three will release her second book, a tale involving children of divorce, sometime next year.
