Creator: John Green
"Good morning Hank, it's Tuesday."
"Didn't this guy write The Fault in Our Stars? And Paper Towns? And Looking for Alaska? And An Abundance of Katherines?"
—Fans of John's books who have encountered his antics for the first time

John Michael Green is an award-winning Young Adult novelist and a famous Internet vlogger.

Green writes novels for young adults, securing the Printz Award for his first book, Looking for Alaska and staying at the top of the New York Times Bestseller list for upwards of fifty weeks with The Fault in Our Stars. His other two solo works were An Abundance of Katherines and Paper Towns. He's also worked on several books in collaboration with other young adult authors, including Will Grayson, Will Grayson with David Levithan, and Let It Snow with Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle.

On the internet, he's probably best known for being one half of the VlogBrothers, along with his younger brother, Hank Green. That, or the writer behind the interactive novel/riddle game thisisnottom. He is also currently giving lectures on the humanities with the program Crash Course and talking about interesting trivia on Mental Floss, which he had written for early in his career.

Before becoming a full-time writer, he worked as a book reviewer for Booklist and as a chaplain at a hospital.

It should be noted that among his accomplishments are, despite a very common name all but one of the results on the first page of a Google search on "John Green" are for him, and that he got his tens of thousands of YouTube followers to refer to his wife as "The Yeti" and is still married (it refers to the rarity and brevity of her appearances in VlogBrothers videos).

His book The Fault in Our Stars has been adapted into a film and he was given a short cameo. Which was then cut.

His works include:


"Hank, I will see you on Friday."
