John M. Green is the author of Double Deal, The Tao Deception, The Trusted, Born to Run and Nowhere Man. He left his day job as a banker two years before the global financial crisis - enough of a lag so no one could accuse him of starting the whole mess! Today, he straddles writing, business and philanthropy. He's a director of several organisations, listed and unlisted, including cyber-security, financial services, engineering, publishing and not-for-profits. He lives in Sydney with his wife, the sculptor Jenny Green.
