More About the Author
Alan L Moss is a unique and emerging voice in the thriller genre. His writing draws upon Ph. D. research capabilities and many years in Washington D.C. as a federal Chief Economist, Congressional Fellow in the U.S. Senate, and Adjunct Instructor at the University of Virginia's Northern Virginia Center. In 2002, he put his government career aside and moved to the Jersey Shore to pursue his writing. His published novels spin sophisticated tales of conspiracy, love, sex, and subterfuge. After years of politics and bureaucracy, Alan has found the freedom of writing fiction an intoxicating and satisfying calling.
Two distinguishing features of Alan's novels are involvement with significant national and international issues and remarkable settings. His new novel, Surviving The Endgame (Whiskey Creek Press August 2014), sequel to Insidious Deception, involves a presidential election that becomes a deadly contest between international conspirators and those seeking their destruction. Locations include Kakabeka Falls, Ontario; San German, Puerto Rico; Madison, Wisconsin; New York City, NY; Richmond, VA; and Atlantic City, NJ.
According to Jack Magnus of Readers' Favorite, "Surviving The Endgame is a literate and entertaining action and adventure novel...a fast-paced and exciting read with a great cast of characters and a fabulous plot." According to Diane Donovan of Midwest Book Review, "Events hold many surprises as they unwind, and nothing is guaranteed - not even the survival of favorite characters. Even the most seasoned thriller reader will find Surviving The Endgame filled with delightfully unexpected moments."
Insidious Deception deals with the conspiracy's drive to corner the market for rare earth minerals, including a unique Middle East proposal designed to propel a U.S. Senator under their influence into the White House. That proposal has been the subject of a Suspense Magazine article and has been published in its entirety in Middle East Conflicts & Reforms, by Westphalia Press, an imprint of the Policy Studies Organization of Washington D.C.
According to Maria Beltran of Readers' Favorite,"From Jordan to Croatia, Israel, Italy, France, Yemen and the U.S., this thriller brings its reader on an electrifying journey that is vivid and real." Mark McLaughlin of ForeWord Reviews: "Moss sells his tale of terror, political intrigue, and corporate mayhem. He makes the reader believe that the story could, and even might, happen."
Alan's non-fiction offerings include Selling Out America's Democracy (Praeger 2008) and Employment Opportunity (Prentice-Hall 2000).
