History: C. Dennis Moore was born Charles Moore in October of 1972. Nine years later he stopped going by Charles (his step-father’s name) and took his biological father’s name (Dennis). This change has never been made legal. Nine years later again, Dennis Moore started writing and never stopped. Later that same year, his high school Composition teacher, Mrs. Barr, one of the most vocal of those early supporters and head of the yearbook staff, listed him in his Senior yearbook as C. Dennis Moore. He’s used it ever since.
Since then he’s published over 60 short stories, 3 novellas, 1 novel, a poetry collection, compiled several anthologies, and a number of short story collections. Other than writing, his interests are very limited.
