If being the star of MTV's most successful reality show, The Hills, wasn't enough, FIDM Merchandise Product Development student Lauren Conrad is hitting the headlines in another big way.
Our very own Lauren Conrad recently signed a three-book deal with HarperCollins Publishers to write "a behind-the scenes story of a young girl who moves to L.A. and unexpectedly becomes the star of a reality television show."
Says LC, "I've always loved books I could lose myself in, one's that would transport me to another place, but had characters I could relate to. I'm so excited to have this opportunity to write books like that for other readers."
Dubbed L.A. Candy, the series has no release date, but according to HarperCollins Vice President Elise Howard, "I've never seen a new project generate noise like the instant buzz that swept through our offices around this deal. The Hills and Lauren Conrad are household names among our staff, and their popularity is even higher among the teens who are our readers. We're bracing ourselves for a blockbuster publication."
Way to go, LC!
