Biographical and Professional Information
A.D. Moore is an accomplished writer, military veteran and poet. His first self-published book of poetry was entitled Street Talk & Moore, Poetry for the People. In 2006, Street Talk & Moore, Poetry for the People: The Collection followed. Over the years, he has been published in a number of publications, including The Chicago Sun-Times and Today's Black Woman magazine. A member of Poets United to Advance the Arts for nearly fifteen years, he's a recipient of The Gwendolyn Brooks Poetry Award and along with PUTATA, has appeared in various venues in and around the Chicago area.
Mr. Moore is a Purple Heart, Vietnam Veteran, and his tour of duty in the Southeast Asian country (one was enough) provided genesis and direct insight-warfare revelations on the war that were instrumental in providing excerpts for his fictional short stories, Vignettes of Vietnam and The Excremenator. Married and the father of three, he obtained an Associate, Bachelor and Masters degree on the G.I. Bill. As a result of P.T.S.D. symptoms, he is a disabled, retired Postal employee. He performs his works at schools, churches, and other venues throughout Illinois.
