Glee‘s Chris Colfer has landed a two book deal! He will pen an adventure book series about a pair of twins and will target the pre-teen demographic. Chris also has another writing project with Disney for a pilot. Who knew Chris was such a writer!

According to THR,

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.”

In addition to the book deal, Colfer is also penning a Disney Channel pilot, The Little Leftover Witch, a concept based on Florence Laughlin’s children’s book that revolves around a witch who is taken in by a new family after her broom breaks and she drops out of the sky. He is also writing Struck by Lightning, an independent feature that he would star in as well.

“Chris is a remarkable talent whose writing combines all the qualities kids love — memorable characters, heart-pounding adventure, in a setting filled with wonder, intrigue and enchantment,” Little, Brown senior vp and publisher said.
