Tonya R. Moore

Tonya R. Moore is a writer of Science fiction, fantasy, and horror short stories and novels. Currently living in Florida, she is pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing and English with a concentration in Fiction.

Born and raised in Jamaica, she brings a fresh West Indian perspective to the science fiction, fantasy, and horror universes. A fan of all things spec-fic, she is a closet otaku and is the founder of www.specfics.com, an online community for fans and creators of speculative fiction.

Tonya grew up reading books by authors such as Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Larry Niven and Anne McCaffrey. Their works portrayed space-faring humans and unbelievable creatures having fantastic adventures in distant future and far-flung regions of the universe. She fell in love with the remarkable characters and worlds those authors envisioned. She started to write stories with similar characteristics and since 2009 has published several short stories and a novelette which were published in small magazines and anthologies.
