Brad Moore gained his love for reading at an early age when his older sister introduced him to Margret and H.A. Rey's classic character, Curious George. After watching re-runs on late night television of the Perry Mason series, he began reading the novels by Earl Stanley Gardner. His love for mysteries grew as he read classics from Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler.
Although he is an avid mystery fan, his greatest influences as a writer are John D. Fitzgerald's The Great Brain, Keith Robertson's Henry Reed, and Beverly Cleary's Ramona. To him, these books and characters exemplified the innocence and enjoyment of childhood. It is with this tradition and spirit that he developed Serina K., a character brought to life by the real life exploits of his daughter, Serina K.
