Lauren Conrad


That Pulitzer Prize is as good as hers.

After proving her mastery of the spoken word as the protagonist of The Hills, Lauren Conrad is staking her claim on the written word, signing a three-book deal with HarperCollins based on her Hollywood experiences—presumably, the minutiae not already chronicled on TV.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the book series, which follows an average teen who becomes a reality star, could potentially be developed as a film or (uh, another) TV project.

While the books will be based on Conrad's gal-about-town shenanigans, the young adult tomes will officially be classified as fiction, with the first in the series set for release in the summer of 2009.

"It's definitely influenced by my own life," the reality star-turned-fashion designer-turned-Speidi nemesis-turned author told People.

"The books are about a girl who moves to L.A. and stars in a reality show, so obviously there are some similarities."

She has also assured her nearest and dearest that she won't be using the books to kiss, tell or otherwise take swipes at those in her circle.

"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," she said, adding that she has already completed the outline for the first book. "Some of the characters may symbolize people in my life, but it is in no way calling anyone out."

Not that her friends are overly concerned with the 22-year-old's sense of loyalty.

"I've told my best friends and they have all been really supportive. Nobody was worried."
