David Moore was born in Larne in 1959. Educated at Larne Grammar school, he was a civil servant before joining the police force in 1979. Throughout his early years he witnessed Northern Ireland turn from a peaceful province into the deadly killing ground it became in the 70′s 80′s and 90′s. His work saw him serving all over Northern Ireland before his retirement. He had always written poems and various articles for close friends and colleagues, however, in 2009 he became involved with the Lifelong Learning group at Stranmillis University College, Belfast. It was then he compiled a number of short stories and began the writing of three novels. David is a keen motorcyclist, owning a number of bikes and he is also a sailor and lover of things nautical.

The Abbot was his first novel, followed by In The Lion’s Mouth and Other Stories. Two more stories are also currently in the pipeline.
