Ohio connection: Birth
Michael Buckley’s "Grimm" future began at birth in Akron, Ohio. 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. Eventually he found work in television production and in his 10-year career he has developed programming for MTV, MTV Animation, Discovery Networks and Klasky Csupo (producers of Nickelodeon's Rugrats), focusing heavily on children’s programming. The "Sisters Grimm" series is Michael’s first venture into the world of children’s book writing. In addition to this popular set of books, Buckley has a second series entitled "N.E.R.D.S." Buckley lives in New York.
