Creative Writer and Activist, Gary E. Moore

"My name is Gary E. Moore. I am a poet, an author and, most importantly, a Dad.

My most recent work, Songs For The Cleveland Avenue Warriors: poems from the past, present and future, was just published and is available for purchase from, an independent, woman-owned press.

I also recently published and released What Daddy Do! and What Mommy Do! the first books in the forthcoming What We Do! The Children's Book Series."

Why do you do what you do?

Writing is what I love. It is a gift that I find joy in sharing with the world.

What are some projects you are currently working on?

Right now I have three published titles, two children's books, What Daddy Do and What Mommy Do, and a book of poetry, Songs For The Cleveland Avenue Warriors.

In addition to these three works, I also have two completed manuscripts undergoing the final editing process in preparation for release sometime in 2022, one an Afro-futurist, Urban fantasy, and the other a collection of short stories.

What are your goals for the short-term and long-term ?

Short-term I wish to further grow my reach and influence. Mine is a gift that I truly wish to share with the world, which leads into my long-term goals; I want to establish a firm foundation of literary excellence that my son can grow up to be proud of.

Who or what inspires you?

I have a number of inspirations, first and foremost, my parents. As I've grown older, I realize with greater clarity just what it was that they sacrificed for my siblings and I.

Secondly, though, I am immensely inspired by my son, who makes me want to be a better person each day.

If you could change anything about your industry, what would it be?

I would lower the barriers for entry into the publishing world. It is difficult to find an outlet for alternative voices. Greater access can only lead to a greater degree of diversity and a further flourishing of the arts.

What do you plan to do once you cross the millionaire mark?

Keep writing. Keep working towards improving the lives of those in my community.
