With experience writing for television and over 15 published titles to his name, Buckley is best known for The Sisters Grimm, a series of nine novels that showcase two sisters unearthing mysteries, encountering nemeses, and evading danger as they encounter many famed fairytale characters wandering around Everafter, a fictitious town set in New York State.
