Caroline Cooney was born in 1947 and grew up in Old Greenwich, Connecticut.
An excellent student and ambitious youth, she loved school and was involved in many different activities. By the time she was in tenth grade, Cooney played the piano for musical productions, directed a choir, and had a job as a church organist. Always an avid reader, Cooney often read series books such as The Hardy Boys and Cherry Ames. These characters had a big influence on her life and in fact, she says Cherry Ames, Student Nurse, was my reason to go to nursing school in Boston later in life. Cooney graduated from Greenwich High School in 1965 and attended various colleges, where she studied music, art, and English. It was in college that she began writing, and discovered a talent and joy in what would become an award-winning writing career. Cooney professes, I love writing and do not know why it is considered such a difficult, agonizing profession. I love all of it, thinking up the plots, getting to know the kids in the story, their parents, backyards, pizza toppings. Cooneys love of writing for young adults is clearly demonstrated in her numerous celebrated novels including: Drivers Ed (An ALA Best Book for Young Adults, an ALA Quick Pick for Young Adults, and a Booklist Editors Choice), Among Friends (A New York Public Library Books for the Teen Age), Twenty Pageants Later (An ALA Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers), and the time travel novels, Both Sides of Time and Out of Time.
She is a master of mixing spellbinding suspense with thought-provoking insight into teenagers lives. Among Cooneys most popular books are the bestselling novels The Face on the Milk Carton and Whatever Happened to Janie? . To satisfy the hundreds of fans wanting to know more, Cooney continues Janies captivating story with, The Voice on the Radio, a gripping novel of betrayal.
