Bio: Gordon Korman is a regular guy who just happened to write 80-something books for kids and teens. He's been writing for more than three-quarters of his life. His books have been translated into close to 30 languages and have sold over 25 million copies worldwide. Gordon has a BFA degree from New York University with a major in Dramatic Writing and a minor in Film and TV. He now lives on Long Island, outside New York City, with his wife and family. When he's not writing, you can usually find him driving one of his three kids to some practice or rehearsal or game. Either that, or on the road, appearing at schools, libraries, and bookstores, meeting readers.
