Anastacia Moore


Anastacia Moore is an author, musician, photographer, artist, and animal lover. Having over 20 years experience in graphic design, and working in the legal field, financial field, she temporarily set aside her passion for writing. She has also worked as a wildland firefighter in Oregon, and as a fisherman on the actual Salute, out of a little seaside town called Charleston, in Oregon. This was the inspiration for "Curse of The Salute". After attending college in Nebraska, she travelled around the country, up until the late 1900's, working in various fields, and taking iconic photographs of people, wildlife, historic places, and professional portraits. She currently lives in California with her soul mate Michael, and their cat "Chloe" and sweet cockapoo rescue dog, "Missy".

Anastacia invites you to immerse yourself in the mysteries of the fishing vessel Salute. If you are a fan of Stephen King, Dean Koontz, or Peter Straub, you will be happily immersed in the haunting tale of the Salute. Anastacia is currently working on "Obtrusion" a novel of intergalactic revelations that will force you to consider the other-worldly possibilities of the "creation" theories that for centuries have been tormenting the minds of mankind.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on a ranch in Southern California, before moving to the Midwest. Living in remote areas most of my life garnered a pretty vivid imagination, along with being an avid fiction reader. I think that most of my writing comes from a combination of truth and fiction, hopefully combined to keep the readers' interest, and perhaps give them something to think about as well. I also use a lot of my life experiences in my writing, mixed of course with equal doses of fact and fiction. The challenge to the reader is to figure out which part is fact and which part is truly fiction.
When did you first start writing?
I first began writing songs and poetry when I was twelve years old. My father, after I had been begging for quite sometime, bought me a wonderful $20.00 Sears and Roebuck guitar for Christmas, and I would spend hours upon hours up in the dormer window of my bedroom, listening to certain albums repeatedly, and teaching myself the chords and music by ear. From there I would create my own music and songs. In the seventh grade I had the most fantastic English teacher; Mr. Sharp, who introduced us to the "classics" Edgar Allan Poe, Longfellow, Cooleridge, Shelley, and tons of others. He taught us a lot in our Creative Writing classes, and I honestly think that is what inspired me to become an author.
