Caroline B. Cooney is an American author of young adult books. An avid reader, Cooney read many books while in elementary school. Three books that she recalls particularly liking were Sword of The Wilderness by Elizabeth Coalsworth, Indian Captive by Lois Lenski, and Black River Captive by West Lanthrop.

Cooney played the piano, directed a chorus and was a church organ player by the time she was 13. While a teenager, she favored reading books in the The Hardy Boys and Cherry Ames series, but a particular favorite was Magic by the Lake by Edward Eager. During college, she studied arts, music and English.

She has written over 60 books beginning with Safe as the Grave in 1979. Several of her novels, including Driver's Ed, Among Friends, Twenty Pageants Later, Both Sides of Time, and Out of Time have won awards, including the American Library Association award and an IRA–CBC Children's Choice Award.

At least two of her works have been made into films for television, including The Face on the Milk Carton. (From Wikipedia.)
