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





My first publication was a profile of Carroll James - published in Washingtonian Magazine in December, 1983. Carroll was the first American deejay to play "I Want To Hold Your Hand."  


We later released his 1964 interview with the Beatles on an extended 33 rpm record.




Another article was published in the Washington DC suburban Journal Newspapers in 1987 when Bruce Sprinsteen tapped Nils Lofgren to be in the E Street Band

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)
