New Author Photo and Bio

About a year ago, I dropped by a Barnes & Noble to see if they had any of my books to sign. I was in luck, but I hit a snag. Always before, they’d just let me sign the books, and I went on my merry way. This time, they looked at the author pic at the back of the book, looked at me, looked at the pic again . . . and then asked to see some identification. I’m usually not the best at picking up subtle hints, but I did manage to understand that perhaps my picture, taken about nine years ago now, no longer quite matches up with what I look like today. (Not that I’ve aged that much, but in the intervening years I’ve started wearing glasses again, I’ve lost around 30 pounds, and (fine) I’ve gotten a fair bit of grey in my beard.)

So when we were getting family pictures taken a couple of weeks ago and our photographer (the fantastic Jamie Lynn) asked if there were any other shots we wanted, I asked if she’d be willing to do a new head shot for me, and she was happy to. So here’s the new, updated picture of yours truly that will be in A PERFECT PLACE TO DIE when it comes out next year.

At the same time, my editor emailed last week to see if I had a bio for the book. The one I’ve been using has also been getting a bit long in the tooth, so I decided it was time for an update on that as well. Here’s the new one:

Bryce Moore is the author of The Memory Thief and Vodník. When he’s not authoring, he’s a librarian in Western Maine and a past president of the Maine Library Association. And when he’s not up to his nose in library work, he’s watching movies, playing board games, and paying ridiculous amounts of money feeding his Magic the Gathering addiction. Check out his daily blog for writing tips, movie reviews, and general rantings over at
