John Young, Author of Forthcoming Novel, WHEN THE COIN IS IN THE AIR

John Young

When he was eight-years old, John Young told his mother he wanted to be a scientist or a clown. So he spent most of his career in advertising, of course. Along the way, this native Hoosier graduated from Indiana University and scooped up an MFA in creative writing from Emerson College. He also taught English at the high school and college levels.  And he founded YoungThinking, a company which helps find creative ways to promote Skyline Chile or reusable grocery bags. 

He now lives with his wife and two kids in Cincinnati, Ohio. 

When the Coin Is in the Air is his first novel.
