My Back Pages
Welcome to my literary website. A native Washingtonian, I've been writing books and articles since 1983. I'm an Univ. of MD grad where I majored in political science. I retired from Georgetown University in January 2020 after 44 years in scientific research. I lost my wife, Margaret (Schwarz) Moore, to breast cancer in 2018 after 40 beautiful years. of marriage. We raised two amazing children, Charles and Suzanna Moore.
I described all of my literary experiences in a 2021 interview with Steve Houk in this video: LIVING on MUSIC
Also in 2021, I completed a history with Birchmere founder/owner Gary Oelze: All Roads Lead To The Birchmere: America's Legendary Music Hall Visit the Birchmere Book page for updates and info. Available on Amazon. Thanks! Steve
In 1991, I co-authored the scholarly history of actress Helen Hayes, with Donn B. Murphy, a Georgetown professor of theatre, and then President of the National Theatre. The book, Helen Hayes: A Bio-bibliography, is still in print after 31 years. (see Helen Hayes)
