Biographical Sketch

Born in Dearborn, Michigan, Toni Buzzeo was an avid reader from a young age. While attending college at the University of Michigan, Dearborn, where she eventually graduated in 1976 with a BA in English Language and Literature, she took a job as a library clerk. Later she would go on to receive an MA in English Language and Literature and eventually an Masters in Library and Information Science from the University of Rhode Island, Kingston. She had a career as a school librarian for sixteen years, and began writing for children in 1995. Her first book, The Sea Chest , was published in 2002, and received the 2002 Lupine Honor Award and the 2005 Crown Gallery Award. She has since published nineteen books for children and eleven books for librarians and teachers. She splits her time living in Maine and Florida.
