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."
