Reality Tv star Heidi Montag is following in the footsteps of her former The Hills co-star Lauren Conrad by embarking on a new career as an author.

The busty blonde has drawn inspiration from her own rise to fame on MTv shows Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County and The Hills for her upcoming project, which will be released digitally early next year (15).

Montag tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood Live, "I have my book... that will come out in the new year. It's gonna be a fiction book about a girl from a small town who fell into the limelight of... reality Tv and the chaos of it...

"It's in the final stages of editing. I've decided to make it into an e-book since so much is online these days."

Conrad was named a New York Times bestseller in 2009 following the release of her first novel, L.A. Candy. She also published two sequels, Sweet Little Lies and Sugar and Spice.
