Gordon Korman

Gordon Korman is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than 75 books for kids and young adults. His writing career began at the age of twelve when his seventh-grade English assignment became his first novel, which was then published while he was a freshman in high school.

Now, decades later, he is a full-time writer, with more than 17 million copies of his novels in print. His books have been translated into 14 languages.

Nickelodeon recently brought Gordon Korman's New York Times bestselling Swindle series to life in a made-for-TV movie.

Each year, Gordon travels extensively, visiting schools, libraries and conferences, bringing his trademark humor and adventurous style to readers everywhere.

What is the secret of Gordon's success?

"It's a combination between real life and pure imagination," he says. "I always start off with something real, but then I unleash my imagination to make it more exciting, funnier, or a better story. To be honest, by the time a book is done, you can't recognize much of the real-life part. It's been changed too much. But I never could have gotten there without it."

A native of Canada, Gordon now lives with his family in Great Neck, New York.
