i carry your heart with me
  • Glamour: If you were stranded on the side of the road at 3 a.m. and could only call one Glee co-star to pick you up--knowing they would answer the phone--who would it be and why?
  • Chris Colfer: Can I please just tell you that this has happened 100 times, where they have all called me! I'm always the person they call. I would call Kevin [McHale]. He's reliable. Amber [Riley] is good too. Although she'd probably send her sister! It has happened a couple times.
  • Darren Criss: I think the real question is, ‘Who is a night owl?!’ I know they would all be there for me. But like, I know Lea gets up really early, so I’d probably be screwed. I wouldn’t doubt she’d be there for me, but she’d probably be fast asleep at 3 a.m. I would totally pick Chris [Colfer]. Or Chord, too. Because Chord doesn’t sleep. Or he’d think at 3 a.m. that I have some fun idea to go out and do something! Or Harry. [laughs]

Actor Chris Colfer put pen to paper for his latest project.


Chris Colfer has already proved himself a triple threat, deftly singing, dancing and acting on his hit show, Glee. Turns out, the 22-year-old Golden Globe winner is the rare quadruple threat: He can write too. Colfer’s debut novel, The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell — a magical story about two kids who suddenly find themselves face to face with real-life fairy-tale characters — hits stores this month. Colfer fills us in on how he added author to his list of accomplishments.

Glee star Chris Colfer has talked with news outlets across the nation this month to promote his first book, The Land Of Stories: The Wishing Spell. In the process, he’s let slip that he’s releasing another novel later this year.

“I actually have another novel coming out this year,” the young author told Examiner last week. “I’m not sure when they’re going to announce it, but it’s coming out this year as well. I don’t know how top secret it is yet.”

The Writing Life: Chris Colfer of 'Glee' inspired by fairy tales



When Chris Colfer was just 20, he’d already been named one of GQ magazine’s men of the year, having sung and acted his way into the hearts of America as Kurt, the high-pitched, openly gay brunet who is unabashedly himself on the hit TV show “Glee.” Colfer’s star had risen so fast in the year he’d starred on the Fox comedy that a literary agent asked him to pen his autobiography — an endeavor Colfer had the good sense to decline because it was so premature.

Instead, Colfer offered “The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell” (Little, Brown: 448 pp., $17.99 ages 8 and up) — an idea he’d been percolating since age 10. His fairy tale mash-up, about twins who fall into story land and embark upon a scavenger hunt through the kingdoms of Goldilocks and other legendary damsels in distress, will be published Tuesday.
