​D.N. Moore was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, and now lives in Florida with her family. Formerly a teacher, her passion is cultivating a love of reading in children – in her students, her own children, and now her readers.

“I greatly admire the vivid imagination that most children have, and I believe that books are the key to unlocking that,” says Moore. “Some of my fondest memories are of teaching a child to read and watching them fall in love with a good story, so much that they forget that they are even in a classroom. I hope to create the same effect with my own books.”

Moore spent a lot of time traveling throughout Canada as a child, as her mother was driven by wanderlust, and she was exposed to a wide variety of settings. From the snow-capped Rockies and the lazy rivers of the Okanagan to the historic cathedrals of Montreal, Moore was immersed in the beauty and cultural diversity of Canada. She brings all of this to life in her books.

“I have been inspired by so many authors over the years, I’ve lost count,” says Moore. “It began with Avi, C.S. Lewis, L.M. Montgomery, Roald Dahl and Tolkein. In High School, I devoured Ayn Rand, George Orwell, Ray Bradbury, Louis L’Amour, and many classics like Jane Austen, Dickens, Bronte and Shakespeare. Every book has been a treasure to me, something that has shaped me into the person I am today, and I am eternally grateful to those men and women who took the time to craft such beautiful and timeless stories. This is one of the reasons I write.”

Moore’s writing has been described as “lyrical” and “chilling” and has been compared to Neil Gaiman and Naomi Novik. She was awarded with Silver Honorable Mention by the Writers of the Future for her short story “The Blandford Fly” in 2019.
