Our L.A. correspondent Sydney Sadick caught up with Cali native, author and designer Lauren Conrad at the launch of her final book in the “Fame Game” series, Infamous, at Barnes & Noble at The Grove.
S: Congrats on your latest book, Infamous! How does it feel to be reaching the final book in your series?
LC: Bittersweet! It’s so nice to feel like I’ve reached the finish line, but it’s a little sad to be done because I really do enjoy doing it. And when you finish a series, you’re also saying goodbye to the characters!
S: What are you most excited for us to see in this book?
LC: All of the romances…and I don’t think one is better than the other! There are several of them that go on at once. I always think those are the fun things to read about, because those are the books that I enjoy most. And there’s even a little scandal. Actually, there’s a lot of scandal.
S: Where were some of your favorite spots to write?
LC: When I can, it’s usually just at my apartment. I like to write in bed because I’m lazy, and if I can, then why not? If I’m on the road, it’s just wherever I am, usually airplanes. I try to block out time, but it tends to be kind of random!
S: Where have you gotten most of your inspiration?
LC: I think you write what you know. I’ve lived in L.A. long enough to soak it in. You both experience and hear a lot of crazy things in Hollywood, so there’s no lack of inspiration here.
S: I’m sure! By the way, adored your cover and spread in Marie Claire!
LC: Aw, thank you!
S: What did you have for lunch on set?
LC: We had chicken and rice…whatever was there!
S: Any summer plans?
LC: I’m honestly looking forward to trying to do nothing!
