One of the stars of Fox’s “Glee” has signed a deal to write two books for Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Golden Globe winner Chris Colfer’s "The Land of Stories" will be up first, due in summer 2012. It tells the story of twins who get wrapped up in an adventure that combines fairy tales with the modern world, and is geared for readers 8 to 12 years old.

A second novel, as yet untitled, will follow, the story says.

"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, who recently turned 21,  said in a statement.

Colfer is also writing a pilot for the Disney Channel based on a children’s book called "The Little Leftover Witch," the story notes.
