More About the Author

George M. Papa (1943 - ) was born in Chicago during WWII, being the oldest child of a Catholic, Croatian, sailor father and a devout many-generation Mormon mother from Northern Arizona, who had graduated from Brigham Young University. Two weeks after his birth, George and his Mother moved to Snowflake, Arizona to live with her parents and to wait out the war. However, the month before George was born, his father converted to Mormonism so George would not be born a half breed. After the war, George's parents settled in Northern Arizona where four more sons were born.

Two years after High School George served a two and a half year Mormon mission to Argentina then he enlisted in the Army during the height of the Vietnam War. While attending a classified military intelligence school in Massachusetts, he married his Arizona sweetheart. Soon afterward, he passed up a near-civilian Russian surveillance position in Germany in order to attend Infantry Officer Candidate School (OCS) at Ft. Benning, Georgia, with the stipulation he would be commissioned back into Military Intelligence (MI).

After OCS and due to heavy officer losses in Vietnam, George was not commissioned back into Military Intelligence but rather into the Infantry where he had been trained. Twenty years later, George wrote his first book entitled "The Conclusion", in which he takes the audience on a couple of search and destroy missions out in the jungle then culminates in the only time in the entire Vietnam War that a U.S. Battalion Headquarters got completely overrun, which was his battalion at a place called LZ Mary Ann.

After Vietnam, George became a real estate broker and developer. He and his wife have six children and ten grandchildren. George has a passion for writing motion picture screenplays. What drives him in this regard is that he loves outstanding movies but they are way too few and far between.

His first screenplay was copyrighted in 1990 but it just sat on the shelf because nobody in Hollywood had any interest in putting it on the big screen. Undaunted, George wrote fifteen more screenplays and has plans to do several more. Four of these now appear on this author page. All of George's books are in the form of high action, blockbuster-type epic screenplays complete with dozens of photos or paintings to illustrate the scenes depicted.
