LOS ANGELES, CA, United States (UPI) -- Los Angeles-based rap superstar Snoop Dogg is writing a novel for Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, it was reported Thursday.

'Love Don`t Live Here No More' is expected to hit U.S. store shelves in October, The Book Standard reported on its Web site. It is expected to be the first in a series of 'street lit' offerings from the rapper.

The story follows a young Southern Californian`s struggle to make it out of the mean streets and into the world of hip-hop.

'Snoop, by nature of what he does, is a storyteller,' Atria`s Kathleen Schmidt told The Book Standard.

Schmidt said the rapper should be able to broaden his audience by putting his words on paper.

'Books speak more to a female audience than does his music, so these novels give him an opportunity to show, particularly his female fans, another side,' she said.
