About the Author
Rich Shapero’s novels dare readers with giant metaphors, magnificent obsessions and potent ideas. His casts of idealistic lovers, laboring miners, and rebellious artists all rate ideas as paramount, more important than life itself. They traverse wild landscapes and visionary realms, imagining gods who in turn imagine them. Like the seekers themselves, readers grapple with revealing truths about human potential.
All of his titles are available in hardcover and as ebooks. They also combine music, visual art, animation and video in the TooFar Media app.Visit RichShapero.com
