Michael Soper was born 1946 in Washington DC. He was the last hot-metal apprentice typesetter in that city, and was intrigued by the challenges of word processing for Chinese character fonts. When the Washington Star newspaper ceased publication in early August 1981, he returned to college and did a major in business with a minor in computers. Michael went on to work for the US government as a printer, publications system manager, editor, and contracting specialist. He has been translating Chinese poetry for almost twenty years.
Michael has authored twenty books, most of which are poetry.
