J. Rae Moore
J. Rae Moore’s love for the world of fantasy began at an early age with novels such as A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle and the Narnia series by C.S. Lewis. Proudly a self-proclaimed free-range reader, her reading bill of fare has stretched into several different genres, but her writing remains rooted in her first love—fantasy.
She began writing in the seventh grade with whimsical poems about talking animals and short stories about killer vegetables. After graduating from high school, her writing took a back seat to college, a short stint in the U.S. Army, marriage, and children.
Once revisited by the writing bug, J. Rae Moore added to her writing resume by writing several radio commercials for AAFES closed circuit radio. She then went on to write several short stories that have won numerous awards in writing contests such as The Writers’ League of Texas Manuscript Contest, The Annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition, and The Yellow Bird Editors First Chapter Contest.
J. Rae Moore stays active in the writing community by attending conferences and workshops such as The Writers’ League of Texas Agents and Editors Conference, Rewrite – The Jagged Edge, and On Being a Writer. She is also a member of the local writing group Novel Ideas and contributing writer to the blog The Missing Comma Club.
California grown and Texas transplant, J. Rae Moore lives smack dab in the middle of the state. Her house family consists of nine individuals comprising of a variety of sizes, species, and personalities, while her extended family ranges from the Atlantic and deep into the Pacific. Her hobbies include reading, fitness, and DIY projects. She’s a quintessential introvert and is often quite confused.
