Rapper Snoop Dogg is working on his first novel LOVE DON'T LIVE HERE NO MORE, to be published in October (06). The DROP IT LIKE IT'S HOT star is launching a series of 'street-lit' books, which will chronicle a Californian man's journey into the world of hip-hop. Snoop Dogg, real name CALVIN BROADUS, is hoping his sensitive literary foray will draw in more female fans. KATHLEEN SCHMIDT, director of publicity for Atria Books, says, "Snoop, by nature of what he does, is a storyteller. "Books speak more to a female audience than his music, so these novels give him an opportunity to show, particularly to his female fans, another side."
