LAS VEGAS – LeAnn Rimes (search) isn't planning to have babies anytime soon, but that hasn't stopped her from writing children's books.
The country singer Rimes and her husband, Dean Sheremet, recently finished their second children's book, called "Jack's New Friend," (search) and the 21-year-old says she's working on a third. Her first, "Jag" was published in 2003 by Dutton Books, but Rimes says singing is still her first job.
She is currently touring and testing out new material for her upcoming disc, which will be a mix of country and pop and is due out in the fall.
"I love writing my own music, but I think it's also wonderful to have other people's perspectives on my album," she told AP Radio.
Rimes' most recent release is "Twisted Angel," a mix of pop, country and blues. Her first album, "Blue," sold more than 6 million copies.
