Can GLEE’s Chris Colfer do it all? It sure seems like it! Not only can he sing and act, he is about to add author to his line up of talents. According to THR, he has just signed on to a two-book deal with Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
The Land of Stories, due in summer 2012, will tell the story of twins Alex and Connor Bailey and be a fast-paced adventure series that combines the modern world with fairytales. It will target readers ages 8-12 and be followed by a second novel that is yet to be titled.
“When I was 10 years old, I promised myself that if I ever had the opportunity to write this book, I would jump at the chance,” Colfer said in a statement announcing the news Wednesday. “This book has been at the core of my imagination for a long time and I’m excited and nervous to share it.”
And then of course, there is his TV pilot for Disney Channel entitled ‘The Little Leftover Witch‘. Chris, you keep amazing us over and over again!
