About the Author

American author, John Green has followed a completely different career path than he had intended. His plan had been to get his undergraduate degree, then to work towards a Doctor of Divinity degree from the University of Chicago Divinity School. He spoke about being bullied and how it ruined his teenage years, but also served as assistant chaplain for five months at the Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. After that experience combined with the bullying he suffered, John Green did not go to divinity school, but wrote The Fault in Our Stars. After working with children suffering with life- threatening illnesses, he was inspired to write the novel instead of continuing on the previous path.

The Fault in Our Stars was on the New York Times Best Seller's List for children's books for two weeks, then was made into a major motion picture, using the same name, in June of 2014. Green has the reputation for, "ushering in a new golden Era for contemporary, realistic, literary teen fiction" from a time when young people's books were dominated by young wizards, sparkly vampires, and such. His work is very well-respected by other children's authors......so much so that a John Green endorsement will mean a boost in sales for that author.

Green resides in Indiana with his wife of nine years, Sarah Urist Green. They have two children, Henry and Alice, and a West Highland Terrier named "Willy". His list of books for young people include: Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Let it Snow: Three Holiday Romances, Paper Towns, Will Grayson, Will Grayson, and The Fault in Our Stars.
