Tora Moon writes all genres of fantasy and especially loves to write stories which allow the reader to journey into worlds full of magic and escape their ordinary lives for a time. Ancient cultures and religions, mythology, and folklore fascinate her and find their way into her stories.
Besides reading, some of her hobbies are sewing, crocheting, and making wire-wrapped jewelry. Her love of travel has taken her to several countries and saw her living in an RV for several years. She makes her home in the southwestern desert with her feline companion.
You’d like to know more about me than that little official tidbit? So what else to say about me?
Like most fiction authors, I fell in love with the written word and stories when I was a child. I loved The Witch of Blackbird Pond and The Island of the Blue Dolphin.
As a teenager I found Dune, Conan the Barbarian, the Xanth series, and the Dragonriders of Pern (which is still my all-time favorite series). After that, much to my mother’s literary disappointment (she studied British Literature in college), my genre of choice was fantasy, science fantasy, with a bit of science fiction thrown in.
I write what I love to read: all genres of fantasy, paranormal romance, and a bit of science fiction. I love stories like Star Wars which mix magic and science into science fantasy. I like a little love and romance to sweeten the pot, but not enough to make it sickly sweet.
