Jordan Sonnenblick was a public school teacher for fourteen years, but always dreamed of being a writer, so one day in 2003 he sat down and started his first young adult novel, Drums, Girls & Dangerous Pie, which was published by Scholastic in 2005. Jordan was as surprised as anybody when the book took off: It received several starred reviews, was named to the American Library Association’s Teens’ Top Ten List, sold over 600,000 copies, and has been translated into fifteen foreign languages. Jordan followed Drums with six more acclaimed books for teens: Notes from the Midnight Driver, Zen and the Art of Faking It, After Ever After, Curveball: The Year I Lost My Grip, Are You Experienced?, and Falling Over Sideways. Jordan has also written the Dodger and Me trilogy of funny fantasy books for middle-grade readers, which includes Dodger and Me, Dodger for President, and Dodger for Sale.

Jordan’s newest book, The Secret Sheriff of Sixth Grade, was published in August 2017 by Scholastic. You can always keep track of Jordan’s comings and goings through his website, the cleverly-named www.jordansonnenblick.com.
