Meet the Author

Tony Moore was born in South London in 1940 and evacuated to Cardiff two weeks later where he spent his early childhood.

He migrated to Australia in 1948 with his mother and brother. After tolerating school he seized the medical course at Melbourne University where he had an outstanding academic record. With post-graduate qualifications in surgery and rehabilitation medicine, he wandered to Cambridge University to read literature and philosophy.

A nomad by temperament, he has worked in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia in medical specialities, always striving to demonstrate how medical practice relates to other social, creative and emotional rhythms. These themes were explored in his first book, THE MISSING MEDICAL TEXT: HUMANE PATIENT CARE and later in ECHOES OF THE EARLY TIDES.

He has four children and lives and writes in the sanctuary provided by the hills of the Mornington Peninsula.
