About Ron Moore
Ron Moore brings a lifetime of diverse interests to his writing. Ron completed an undergraduate degree in Biology from University of California Riverside, and subsequently obtained a Juris Doctor from Western State University College of Law (Valedictorian, Law Review), a master’s degree in Forensic Toxicology from the University of Florida, and an AA in Culinary Arts from Saddleback College.
In his retirement, and apart from writing, he is pursuing AA degrees in Astronomy, Philosophy, Photography, Health Sciences, and perhaps others just for fun. Ron spent over 18 years working in forensics and CSI, then practiced law for 8 years before returning to forensics as a private toxicology consultant. He was a reserve deputy sheriff for over 14 years, assigned to the Search and Rescue unit. He was also a Sergeant of the Bloodhound Team and handled a cadaver detection canine, as well as participating in bicycle patrol, rope rescue, and command post operations.

Ron lives in Southern California with his wife, a cat, and a German Shepard-Husky puppy. Their daughter is away at college (after being homeschooled from K-12). In his spare time, Ron enjoys cycling, kayaking, hiking, camping, golf and ukulele. He watches a lot of movies and reads a lot of thrillers, and is also an Apple fan boy.
