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.

You are a genius!!!!!!!! The Fault In Our Stars is an amazing journey, so truthful it’s like you actually lived those lives. I’ve never read you before this book. My sister died January 30th. ..C O P D. I was privileged to travel with her for several years including her death at 89. Several relatives died with cancer. Death is a familiar acquaintance, a change of dimension, a different field of existence. You coalesced nuances of living and dying of teens beautifully, so real I’m afraid to read your other books. I’m 86, have attended multiple families’ deaths, feel my life is just beginning. Kudos to you!!!!! Great story telling. I hope I can work up enough courage to read more of your books. Thank you Elloise
