Adam Rakunas – Wrytor – Making Digital Compost Since 1996

Who? Me!

Whose fault is this?

About

Hi, I’m Adam Rakunas. I’ve been writing stuff since 1996 and getting paid for it since 2008. It took a while to get from there to here, but the trip’s been worth it. Along the way, I’ve worked as a video game engineer, a fast-food cashier, an IT consultant, a theater usher, a virtual world developer (remember that? I hope you don’t, because that was, frankly, a weird and embarrassing time), a triathlon race director, a parking lot attendant, and a political engineer. Now I’m a stay-at-home parent. I like this job the best.

When the kid’s at school, I write science fiction and fantasy. You can read some of it here. My debut novel, Windswept, was nominated for the 2016 Philip K. Dick Award, so I got that going for me. I’m represented by Sam Morgan at Foundry Literary + Media.
