"I never set out to write a novel that would be labeled dystopian and/or post-apocalyptic.
Maybe I’m a little slow or dull, but I’d never heard of dystopian as a genre before I started writing Rapture. Sure, I’d heard of post-apocalyptic fiction (and loved it!) but not dystopian. Weird thing is, even though I hadn’t labeled it, I’d read more than my share. I knew what it meant but I just didn’t consider it as a specific genre."
