Born on October 23, 1963 in Montreal, Canada Gordon Korman the amazing author has some pretty interesting backstory on how he became an author. Like I just told you he wrote his first book in seventh grade but it took a couple years to get published. When he was done writing his first book, "THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING AT MACDONALD HALL" he sent it to get published at Scholastic Canada and didn't get published until his freshman year of high school. He was writing the book because they were told to write a biography.
