When it dawned on John M. Green that the reason he got up in the morning was to write, he quit his job. He spent 30 years as executive director in a leading investment bank and partner in two law firms. A well-known business writer and commentator, his insightful observations are sought after locally and internationally. As a co-founder of Pantera Press, John serves on the governing council of the National Library of Australia, and is a board member of two stock-exchange-listed corporations and not-for-profits. He lives in Sydney with his wife, an award-winning sculptor. John is the author of Nowhere Man, Born to Run and The Trusted.
