John Green Biography
John Green was born in August of 1977 in Indianapolis, Indiana. A few weeks after he was born, the family moved several times, finally landing in Orlando, Florida. Green attended Lake Highland Prep School in Orlando, then Indian Springs School just outside of Birmingham, Alabama. This was later the inspiration for the main setting of his first book, Looking for Alaska. Green attended Kenyon College and had a double major in Religious Studies and English.
Green worked as a student chaplain at a children’s hospital for a few months after graduation. He wanted to become an Episcopal priest but his experience in the hospital caused him to shift his focus to writing. He began working as an editor, reviewer, and publishing assistant for Booklist in Chicago where he published his first novel Looking for Alaska in 2005. This book has won several literary awards. Green has since gone on to write An Abundance of Katherine’s, Paper Towns, Will Grayson, Will Grayson, and The Fault in Our Stars. All books have been on the New York Times Bestseller list. The Fault in Our Stars has been made into a motion picture and was released in 2014. Green also has several YouTube series including educational videos on literature, history, and science subjects called Crash Course. He is also the front man for the magazine Mental Floss’s YouTube channel.
In 2007, Green and his brother began a video blog called Brotherhood 2.0 in which for the course of one year they would forgo all text based communication with each other and only use these video blogs to speak to each other, taking turns submitting one blog each alternating weekday.
Green lives with his wife in Indianapolis, Indiana. He has a current net worth of $5 million but this young writer has many more years of book writing and other endeavors that are sure to increase his earning power and net worth in the next few decades.
