Michael Buckley was born in Akron, Ohio. According to the Sisters Grimm website, "He attended Ohio University where he worked on the school newspaper, hosted his own live television talk show and formed a comedy troupe. After graduating with honors he moved to New York City to find his fortune, but instead found work as a pasta maker, hamburger flipper, personal assistant, stand-up comic and even a singer in a punk rock band."  Michael now works in television, mostly on shows for kids.

Michael also writes the NERDS series, about an outcast group of elementary school kids who join together to form a super-secret spy society. The N.E.R.D.S., or National Espionage Rescue and Defense Society, have used their nerdy science know-how to transform themselves from powerless geeks into super-skilled secret agents. In each story, they battle larger than life villains in adventures both thrilling and hilarious.
