Gregory Mose was born in 1970 in Los Angeles. He graduated with honors from Harvard College in 1992 with a degree in English and American Literature and then took a year off to teach English in Athens, Greece. He returned to the US to study law at Duke, where he specialized in public international law and institutions before accepting a two year contract with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Conakry, Guinea.
While in Africa he worked primarily with Liberian and Sierra Leonean refugees, helping to ensure their continued protected status under international law and facilitating their resettlement in special cases. During that time he witnessed first hand the fallout of Sierra Leone’s vicious coup and civil war in which thousands of civilians were murdered or mutilated.
In 1998 he moved to London to join his fiancée and worked for three years as a corporate securities lawyer for Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer before quitting to become a stay-at-home father. In 2005 he moved with his wife Sophia and son Sebastian to Montcabrier, a small village in southwest France, where they own and operate Domaine de la Dolce, a niche baby-and-toddler-friendly holiday cottage complex.
Stunt Road is Mose’s first published novel. He also blogs about life in rural France and writes for a local English language magazine.
