Author Spotlight: P.M. Sabin Moore, historical novelist

P.M. Sabin Moore

P.M. Sabin Moore is a historical novelist and the author of two novels, Storm Frost and Brightfire: A Tale of Sutton Hoo, the latter being published by Author Reputation Press.

Ms Moore regards writing as her fourth career since she once worked as a TV film extra and operated a local bookstore.

She is a National Trust volunteer at Sutton Hoo (site of the famous ship burial and treasure) and a Sutton Hoo Society Guide.  She particularly finds joy in sharing the history of Sutton Hoo with thousands of tourists each year. Ms Moore says:

“Renewing my acquaintance with the Anglo-Saxons re-awakened my interest in their language, culture and customs, and led me to write two Anglo-Saxon historical novels based in the land of the Wuffings in the 7th century AD.”

Ms Moore lived in Kent, Surrey, Yorkshire and Norfolk before she attended the Royal Holloway College, University of London, where she read English (including Old English and Modern Drama). Since marrying her husband in 1964, she has taught in Suffolk and later became the Head of English and Drama at Woodbridge School.

She was born in Zambia and also lived in Cape Town. In 1944, she left and returned home to England.

Besides writing, one of her memorable experiences was swimming with dolphins on the Florida Keys, scuba-diving on the Great Barrier Reef, and acting in the National Drama Festivals, where she was nominated to the Final.

She enjoys giving talks to local societies and book clubs in addition to book-signings. She regards family, literature, reading and writing, and theatre as the most important things for her.
