“I like to know the places I write about. I feel like it helps me ground the novel. My novels are 'realistic novels,' but they can also be fantastical, so it's nice to have a setting that grounds them a little bit.”

More from John Green

“Read a lot. Read broadly... Tell stories to your friends, and pay attention to when they get bored... Write a lot.”
“Different authors write different ways, have different relationships with their audiences, and those are all legitimate.”
“I write about broken people who need other people in order to go on. But those are the only kind of people I know to exist. We are all broken.”
