LOS ANGELES (AP) - Lauren Conrad can add a new position to her resume: author.
The 22-year-old star of MTV's nonfiction series "The Hills" will pen a young adult fiction book series for HarperCollins, the publisher announced Thursday. The three-book series will be titled "L.A. Candy" and will be loosely inspired by Conrad's transformation from teenager to reality TV star and fashion designer.
"I've always loved books that I could lose myself in, ones that would transport me to another place, but had characters I could relate to," Conrad said. "I'm so excited to have this opportunity to write books like that for other readers."
