Shane Moore worked 12 years as a decorated police officer and a record holding Triple-A semi-pro football player. In 2004, he was stabbed in the line of duty. To cope with sleep anxiety brought on by that event, he penned The Plea of Apollisian. The book sold so well it led to an entire fictional world, spanning three franchise writers and fourteen novels. By 2008, Shane ended his law enforcement career and started writing full time.
In late 2010, Shane was given the chance to write superhero stories for iHero Entertainment. He wrote the short story “I am Villain” and it quickly became one of the top stories for the company. It led to a contract offer from New Babel Books to write a horror novel.
In June of 2012, Shane launched The Apocalypse of Enoch, his highly anticipated “end of days” thriller that mixes Hitchcock with The Exorcist. With characters like Matt Hill (Ninja Turtles), Terry Naughton (Disney), and Peter Mayhew (Star Wars) written in the story as their literal selves, The Apocalypse of Enoch shot to his publisher’s number one best seller. After a whirlwind tour and media blitz landing him on several TV interviews, including Saint Louis FOX 2 with April Simpson and Tim Ezell, Shane has secured permission from the Department of the Navy for the sequel The Apocalypse of Enoch-Scourge. The series has spawned two product license deals, a franchise writer, and a fan group known as Z.O.D. with world wide membership.
In May 2013, Shane signed with hip hop artist Steve Tibbs from Sony Entertainment’s company, California Sound Studios of Wright Records for the song “Blood and Bone” which is featured on the album #Nerd Life. With many more projects in the works, including some TV reality shows soon to be announced, and one of his books has been optioned for a TV pilot.
Just last year, Gary Gygax’s and Steve Chenault’s Troll Lord Games started working on an Abyss Walker table top expansion for their Castles and Crusade’s role playing game. That, and sooo much more coming out, “The Dorky Shane Moore” is one writer you must not miss!
