Rich Shapero is a writer and musician whose multimedia storytelling projects pioneer unseen worlds. At the heart of his stories are vast wildernesses, populated by mercurial private gods who promise deliverance to truer, more profound states of being. But transcendence demands sacrifice, and the paths of his protagonists are fraught with danger, dread and violence. Combining lucid prose with entrancing music, Rich conjures immersive visionary landscapes and characters who struggle to achieve summits of personal fulfillment.

Editorial Review:

"Rich Shapero's new novel, THE HOPE WE SEEK, is an elegantly written, epic story of gold, adventure, and love in one of America's last frontiers. There's just the right touch of magical realism in Shaper

“To be free means always leaving...or returning to a place where leaves never fall.”
Rich Shapero

“Not that it matters, when you dream, there's no outside or in. Your mind is an unimaginable bloom. A willow catkin as big as the moon. With billions of anthers, shaking pollen like stars. It may seem strange, but in this boundless place --- You are not alone.”
Rich Shapero

“Bad dreams are things precious the soul fears it may lose.”
Rich Shapero, Too Far
