Chris ColferJust call Chris Colfer a jack of all trades. The breakout 'Glee' star who sang, danced, and acted his way to a Golden Globe win last year can now add "author" to his resume.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Colfer, 21, recently signed a two-book deal with Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.

The first book, titled 'The Land of Stories,' follows the adventures of a set of twins and will combine fairytales into a modern setting. The book, which targets young readers ages 8 to 12, will be released next summer. A second, yet-to-be-titled book will follow.

"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 Wednesday. "This book has been at the core of my imagination for a long time and I'm excited and nervous to share it."
But this isn't the only new endeavor the talented star is tackling. It was recently announced that he's penning a Disney Channel pilot based on the children's book 'The Little Leftover Witch' by Florence Laughlin. But that's not all. Colfer is also writing 'Struck By Lightening,' an independent feature film in which he would also star.

Recently named one of Time's '100 Most Influential People,' we have a feeling big things are in store for Colfer.
