'''John Marsden''' (born 27 September 1950<ref name="austlit" />) is an Australian writer, teacher and school [[Head teacher|principal]].<ref name=abc /> Marsden has had his books translated into eleven languages<ref name="ulike" /> including Swedish, Norwegian, French, German, Dutch, Danish, Italian, Polish, and Spanish.<ref name="marsden.com" />
 
 
Marsden was born in [[Victoria, Australia]]<ref name="austlit" /> and spent his early life in [[Kyneton, Victoria]], [[Devonport, Tasmania]] and Sydney.<ref name="marsden.com" /> At age 28, after working several jobs, Marsden began a teaching course.<ref name="marsden.com" /> Whilst working as a teacher, Marsden began writing for children, and had his first book, ''[[So Much to Tell You]]'', published in 1987. Since then, he has written or edited over 40 books and has sold over 5 million books throughout the world.<ref name=pan />
 
 
In 2006, Marsden started an [[alternative school]], Candlebark School in the [[Macedon Ranges]], in which he is the school principal. Marsden has since reduced his writing to focus on teaching and running the school. He is also the patron of youth media organisation [[Express Media]].<ref name="abc2" />
 
 
==Early life==
 
Marsden was born in [[Melbourne, Australia]] but spent the first 10 years of his life living in the country towns of [[Kyneton, Victoria]] and [[Devonport, Tasmania]].<ref name="marsden.com" /> When he was 10 years old, Marsden moved to Sydney and attended [[The King's School, Parramatta]].<ref name="marsden.com" /> Following his time there, Marsden was accepted into [[Sydney University]] to study a double degree in Law and [[Arts]],<ref name="marsden.com" /> and attended university despite being confused about what he wanted to do.<ref name="negus" /> However, Marsden struggled during his time there, and due to a sense of alienation and loneliness deriving from family rifts, educational experiences, and simply disliking law, he dropped out.<ref name="marsden.com" /><ref name="negus" />
 
 
After leaving University, Marsden became depressed, and attributes this depression in part to his inability to find a job that suited him.<ref name="negus" /> As his depression deteriorated into suicidal thoughts, Marsden began seeing a psychiatrist. His psychiatrist eventually admitted him to a [[psychiatric hospital]] following a diagnosis of [[Major depressive disorder|depression]].<ref name="negus" /><ref name=enoughrope />
 
 
Marsden credits his stint in the psychiatric hospital as an important period in his life:
 
 
{{quote|It actually was very, very helpful, very constructive and very useful. Because I started learning about feelings and relationships and communication, and the way the world really worked. Where as I guess in the 1950s, at school especially, there was an emphasis on manners and appearances, and that seemed far more important than reality. So ever since, I've really distrusted appearance. I've been much more interested in reality and trying to get past that mask or that nice veneer and to find out what's really going on inside.<ref name=enoughrope />|John Marsden}}
 
 
After his stint in hospital, Marsden continued to take on many different jobs, and through his 20s Marsden worked in as many as 32 different jobs,<ref name=enoughrope /> including an abattoir, working in a mortuary, delivering pizzas, working as a motorbike courier, working as a nightwatchman, selling encyclopaedias and working with chickens.<ref name="negus" />
 
 
Following this period of drifting, Marsden decided, in 1978, to try a teaching career.<ref name="marsden.com" /> Marsden claims to have always had an inkling that he may try teaching, and from the first day of his teaching course Marsden was confident that this was the career that suited him.<ref name="negus" />
 
 
==Writing career==
 
 
===Early career===
 
Whilst working at the prestigious [[Geelong Grammar School]], Marsden made the decision to write for teenagers, following his dissatisfaction with his students' apathy towards reading,<ref name="marsden.com" /> or the observation that teenagers simply weren't reading any more.<ref name="negus" /> Marsden then wrote ''[[So Much To Tell You]]'' in only three weeks, and the book was published in 1987.<ref name="marsden.com" /> The book sold record numbers and won numerous awards including "Book of the Year" as awarded by the [[Children's Book Council of Australia]].<ref name="CBCA80-89" /><ref name="Audio" /><ref name="librarythingsmtty" /><ref name="CMIS" />
 
 
In the five years following the publication of ''So Much To Tell You'', Marsden published six more books. Notable works from this period are ''Out of Time'' which was nominated by the CBCA as a notable book for older readers and ''Letters From the Inside'' and a sequel to ''So Much to Tell You'' called ''Take My Word For It'' which were both shortlisted for the CBCA's Children's Book of the Year: Older Readers award.<ref name="CMIS" /><ref name="CBCA90-99" /> Upon publication in the United States ''Letters From the Inside'' received accolades from the [[Horn Book Magazine]] and the [[American Library Association]].<ref name="librarythinglfti" /><ref name="librarythinglfti" /> American novelist [[Robert Cormier]] found the novel "unforgettable" and described John Marsden as a "major writer deserving of world-wide acclaim".<ref>{{cite web |url=http://www.amazon.com/Letters-from-the-Inside-ebook/dp/product-description/B003UHVNJ2 |author=Cromier, Robert |title=Letters from the Inside |deadurl=no |accessdate=7 July 2012}}</ref>
 
 
===Later career===
 
{{Further|Tomorrow series#Reception}}
 
In 1993 Marsden published ''[[Tomorrow, When the War Began]]'' the first book in the ''[[Tomorrow Series]]'' and his most acclaimed and best-selling work to date. Marsden went on to write seven books in the ''Tomorrow Series'', together with a follow-up trilogy, [[The Ellie Chronicles]] despite originally intending for the entire series to only consist of a trilogy.<ref name="trilogy" />
 
 
At the same time as writing the ''Tomorrow'' series, Marsden wrote several other novels such as ''[[Checkers (novel)|Checkers]]'', edited works such as ''This I Believe'', wrote children's picture books such as ''The Rabbits'', poetry such as ''Prayer for the Twenty-First Century'' and non-fiction works such as ''Everything I Know About Writing'' and ''Secret Men's Business''.<ref name="austlit" />
 
 
===Themes===
 
Marsden's earlier works are largely novels aimed at teenage or young adult audience.<ref name="austlit" /> Common themes in Marsden's works include sexuality, violence in society, survival at school and in a harsh world, and conflict with adult authority figures.<ref name="austlit" /> However, Marsden also has declared that he wishes to write about "things that have always been important for humans... [such as] love, for a start. And the absence of love. The way people relate to each other. The way people solve problems. Courage. Spirit. The human spirit."<ref name="negus" />
 
 
===Awards and commendations===
 
Marsden has won every major writing award in Australia for young people's fiction<ref name="griffith" /> including what Marsden describes as one of the highlights of his career,<ref name=getaheadkids /> the 2006 Lloyd O'Neil Award for contributions to Australian publishing.<ref name=blurb /> This award means that Marsden is one of only five authors to be honoured for lifelong services to the Australian book industry.<ref name="saxton" /> John Marsden was also nominated for the [[Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award]] in 2008, the world's largest children's and youth literature award, and the second largest literature prize in the world.<ref name="saxton" />
 
 
Internationally, he has twice been named among Best Books of the Year by the [[American Library Association]] and once by [[Publishers Weekly|Publishers' Weekly (USA)]], has been runner-up for Dutch Children's Book of the Year and short-listed for the German Young Readers' Award, won the Grand Jury Prize as Austria's Most Popular Writer for Teenagers, and won the coveted [[Buxtehuder Bulle]] in Germany.<ref name=pan /><ref name=griffith /> However, despite his number of awards, Marsden has said that he generally does not care about awards (with the exception of the Lloyd O'Neil Award and The Melbourne Prize for Literature).<ref name=blurb />
 
 
In 1996, Marsden's books took the top six places on the Teenage Fiction best-seller lists for Australia.<ref name="austlit" /> Also in 1996, he was named 'Australia's most popular author today in any literary field' by ''[[the Australian (newspaper)|The Australian newspaper]]''.<ref name="austlit" /> In 1997 Australian readers voted three of his books into Australia's 100 most-loved books of all time.<ref name="austlit" />
