The three-book series, which will be titled "L.A. Candy", are inspired by Lauren's own experience, going from common young girl to a TV actress.

After trying her hand at fashion, Lauren Conrad channels her diverse inner creativity, signing a three-book deal with HarperCollins. The publisher announced Thursday, September 11 that the three-book series, a young adult fiction version, will be titled "L.A. Candy" and be loosely inspired by Conrad's transformation from common 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," Lauren said on her new career venture. "I'm so excited to have this opportunity to write books like that for other readers."

The first book of the series will be published in the summer of 2009 and Lauren has been quite open to share some details. She told People magazine, the book is "definitely influenced by my own life ..... I'm not trying to do a fictional story based on all my friends in my real life because their stories aren't really mine to tell" adding that "some of the characters may symbolize people in my life, but it is in no way calling anyone out."

In related news, The Hollywood Reporter has claimed on its site that the book series "potentially could be developed as a film or TV project." Lauren's camp has yet commented on the claim. "The Hills" star, meanwhile, is still busy with the popular MTV show.
