G. Michael Rapp

Level 7 Belletristican
Profile text

My pen name is G. Michael Rapp, a riff on my legal name, Gregory M. Rapp. I was born in Grand Forks, North Dakota, one of the original nuclear weapons capitals of the world-at that time. However, I was later raised in and around the San Juan Mountains of southern Colorado, where I learned about the stars and how to pan for gold.


I love to write fiction and non-fiction alike, focusing on technology, politics, and cultural change, among other things. My goal as an adult writer seems simple enough: Change the world by making it a better place than when I entered it. That is what the optimist in me hopes, really yearns, for. However, the pessimist in me thinks we're all rats in a cage, given too much free will and reason for our own good. You'll probably notice this battle between optimist and pessimist in my stories, my blog postings, and in my tastes in music, books, video games, etc. (I write on my MacBook Air these days, but I still use pen and paper and the old AlphaSmart Neo2 for those days when inspiration has left me.)


I write to entertain, to explore, and to help others (temporarily) escape into another life, another universe, another time. I create characters who will haunt your dreams, stay with you for days or weeks at a time, and I believe in writing characters who are real. I write about social, cultural, and technological change, along with very human issues like love, loss, deception, intelligence, sentience, isolation, and alienation. The optimist in me wants to make the world a better place through my writing. The pessimist in me knows that this may be harder than the optimist would like to admit.

Wanderers
Wanderers don't feel like they belong to any of the four great houses, or they somehow identify with all of them at once. Whatever the case, they made the active decision to stay free and independent.
