Born in 1963, Liz lived in various parts of California throughout her childhood, as well as in the Bellevue, Nebraska and the Tokyo, Japan areas as a military spouse. Liz began writing seriously while raising her three daughters and her novel, Noble Savage, was published when the manuscript placed second in a writing competition. Writing seems to be in the blood of the Moore family as all five members have either written for fun or possible publication at one time or another. Currently, Liz and two of her daughters all have manuscripts in progress with an eye toward publication in the near future.

AN EXCITING READING ADVENTURE FROM START TO FINISH! Jun 15, 2005
I had the pleasure of meeting Liz Moore at an author's Book Faire in the little town of Dayton, Nevada last Saturday. Following the book-signing, we chatted and decided to trade books. She wanted my "The Toonies Invade Silicon Valley" for one of her young children and I wanted her book for myself! I just finished it and enjoyed it so thoroughly, I'm passing it on to my daughters to read.
This book is an exciting, yet disturbing, account of the end times when only a few survive the "Armageddon" that is staged by a "faux" savior who calls himself Adam. He is evil disgusing himself as good, doing such a fine job of it, he has millions of followers. I don't want to give too much of the plot away, so I won't!
But I will say this book is very well-written with such realistic characters that I found myself gasping when any of them met with misfortune.
Good work, Liz. This is a great book, but I must warn your readers not to take it too seriously, and to remember it's pure fiction. It's so well-written, I fear they may believe it.
I hope you write another book soon. I, for one, will be following your career with interest.
THOUGHT PROVOKING! Sep 22, 2003
Did you ever love a story and hate it at the same time? That is how I felt about "Noble Savage". Now don't misunderstand me, as far as I am concerned Liz Moore is one of the finest writers I have had the pleasure to review their work in quite a while. Her work touched a nerve within me, it was different, deep, sinister and perhaps too real to life.
The story is about one man who decides that he is the best choice to rule the world. All those who accept this "Prophet" are given a shot to protect them against the impending doom of death that will take place, all those who do not are warned that they will not live to see another day. Few believe his ravings, but on that fateful day a good percentage of the world meet their final destination, eternity.
I was drawn into the lives of the characters that Ms. Moore penned through her description of their personalities, families, beliefs. I hated them and I loved them, feared some and cheered for some. Their deep feelings of despair and longing for a life and loved ones that were long gone seeped within me as I actually felt their emotions. What a ride this read was! What was to happen to the human race as this madman continued to rule with no limits set on his insane plans. Some chose to end his reign of terror and set out to plan his destruction, but I wondered was it too late?
This was a great book from a great writer, however it left me disturbed and unsettled. Perhaps because it could happen? I don't know! Would I recommend it? Yes I would, but be prepared for something that will stir inside of you and leave you with a prayer that we will never have to face such a fate! Good job Ms. Moore! Any book that can rile up such emotions has to be a winner! Shirley Johnson Senior Reviewer MidWest Book Reviews Denise's Pieces
