Ted Staunton is the award winning author of many books for children and young adults. Born in Toronto, he studied at the University of Toronto. While he was studying for his B. Ed in 1981, he wrote a story called Puddleman for one of his courses and rather to his surprise it was published. Puddleman was a picture book but he has since written many stories for older children and young adults. Some of the most recent are Who I’m Not which won him the John Spray Mystery Award, Jump Cut, and Power Chord.
