John’s Other Writing


For several years, I wrote commentaries for Chicago Public Radio and, on occasion, for NPR’s All Things Considered. The text of those radio pieces can be found here.

Let It Snow

I wrote a long short story called “A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle” in the book Let It Snow, which also features lovely stories from Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle. This book has been published in translated editions as well.


I’ve written stories for several anthologies. These include “The Great American Morp” in 21 Proms, “The Approximate Cost of Loving Caroline” in Twice Told, and “Freak the Geek” in Geektastic.

This Is Not Tom

I wrote this novella hidden behind insanely complex riddles called “This Is Not Tom.” TINT is unfinished (it will be finished eventually, I hope). TINT is free and available to the public, but the only way to read the story is to solve the riddles, which unfortunately is basically impossible without crowdsourcing. (A good place to start, however, would be the TINT youtube channel.)

For more information about other stuff I’ve written, including book reviews and the books I cowrote for the awesome people at mental_floss, visit the “Other Writing” FAQ page.

I have read ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ and I absoloutely love it! I am hoping to get ‘Looking For Alaska’ today and ‘Paper Towns’. I am not actually a teenager but I really enjoyed ‘The Fault In Our Stars’. (My age is in the double figures.)
