Ian D. Moore


I'm a 43yr old trucker for a major national haulage firm, living and working in North Yorkshire. A father to two sons aged 15 and 9 and step father to a boy and girl who feature in my first novel as smaller versions of themselves. I've been writing for many years but never published my work, usually poetry, short stories or random ideas and this first book, Salby Damned, was created mostly on my break periods while at work and originally written on a mobile phone. I am an ex army soldier, served for four years and after a serious road crash, had to leave the service but then became a trucker, been doing that now for the thick end of 17 years and still love my job. I have loved every minute of writing this first book, already released a second short story book for children and am currently working on my second novel. In the short time since publishing, I've already talked to some amazing people and been given lots of advice and tips for which I am greatly appreciative. Do please visit my web page, there will be an updated blog page shortly.

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
Process? I don't really have set rules, I usually get the ending to a book before the beginning comes, I tend to work backwards and go with the flow really, too much planning often leads to confusion in a story.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Oh yes, definitely. It was a book called The Navajo Slave, though I forget who wrote it, I would have been 7yrs old perhaps and it's stayed with me for the last 36yrs. The book made me imagine, it put me into the shoes of the cowboy who found the indian and made me see through their eyes as many books have done since.
