Lad Moore is a former corporate vice-president who left the boardroom in 1999 and returned to his roots in 'Deep East Texas'. He lives on a small farm near mysterious Caddo Lake and the historic steamboat town of Jefferson, the fountainhead for much of his writing. In the solitude of the piney trails amidst the muscadines, the spines of his stories emerge---stories that are said to "rage with imagery."
The author enjoys more than a hundred publishing credits, with appearances in The Danforth Review, Adirondack Review, The Paumanok Review, The Pittsburgh Quarterly, The Virginia Adversaria, Carolina Country Magazine, Stirring, and America's Intercultural Magazine, among others. Many new stories await the release of his memoir/anthology, "Firefly Rides," coming early in 2002.
His winning story "The Firmament of the Third Day" was included in the Univ. of Washington's Best of Carve Magazine Anthology. "Burger Recollections," a burger-shop memoir, was published in the Food Encyclopedia, "ABC's of Food" by Peach Blossom Press. In addition, Mr. Moore was a 2000 winner of The Wordhammer Award and the Silver Quill. His short story "The Day Hunter" has been nominated for a 2001Award at The Texas Institute of Letters.
