Glee star, Chris Colfer, who was recently named one of Time Magazine’s “100 most Influential People,” has plans to become an author. Colfer signed a 2-book deal with Little Brown Books for Young Readers. The first book, “The Land of Stories,” is a modernized fairy tale about a set of twins, which will be geared toward the 8- to 12-year-old age group.  The book is set to come out next summer.

In addition to writing “The Land of Stories,” Colfer has been busy writing a pilot for the Disney Channel based on the children’s book “The Little Leftover Witch” by Florence Laughlin.  He is also writing an independent film called “Struck by Lightening,” which he will star in as well.
