Jose Moreno


Even when I was 7 years of age, in Guadalajara, Mexico, I loved to pretend that I was a scientist whenever I played with my friends, not realizing that my life was going to revolve around the exciting world of science. I came to the United States when I was 15 years of age, well instructed in English, given that I attended a pedantic Middle school that provided me with a wonderful English teacher. I ended up attending the University of California at Irvine. I met wonderful professors that defined my high standards. I really thank them for having allowed me to get a feeling about what a functional genius looks like. Thanks to that, I ended up getting an interesting job in the field of medical physics after I graduated, where I met more interesting science people. Eventually, I ended up teaching secondary school. That is what I do for living now. I am not sure about tomorrow.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Let's see...the first story I read was "Tom Sawyer". I believe I was in 5th grade. It was not required reading in school; I read it because I use to watch the cartoon version.
How do you approach cover design?
I think aesthetic cover design is not about doing something that gets the attention of people right away: it should be something that allows that reader to see, symbolically, what they are about to read so that, when they finish the book, they can look back at the cover and say to themselves, "I see the significance of the cover; that is why that cover is a great cover."
