About erikrmoore

Erik Moore was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. From a young age, he was an avid reader, and recalls that the first book he read on his own was "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day". He was teased at school for being a geek and frequently dealt with it by retreating into the fantasy worlds of stories, other people's at first, and then those of his own creation. Though a writing enthusiast, his first love and vocation will always be computer programming and website development. He currently resides in Florida with his wife and their menagerie of dogs and cats, and wears his geek label proudly.

Short Stories And Why I Write Them

So, here’s the thing about writing short stories that I love: they’re a challenge. Novels have hundreds of pages to develop a character, get them into and out of trouble, and tie everything up with a little bow. Short stories … Continue reading
