About M.J. Moores

I am a writer of adventure stories (although this is not an official category my writing spans YA, NA, Speculative Fiction, and Romance) who taught high school English in a past life. I am a freelance writers and editor who loves giving creative writing workshops and advising about the self-publishing landscape. I'll have 3 books published in my Chronicles of Xannia series as of April 2017, 3 non-fic industry publications, three short stories in two anthologies, and one essay on the believability factor in fiction writing in a guide to writing. I am a mother and a wife with an OCD bent toward organization - but I hate cleaning and anything related to it, so I'm definitely not a housekeeper! ;) I learned how to shoot an olympic bow when I was in high school and I look forward to taking it up again in the future. I enjoy playing adventure games on my PSIII, X-Box 360, and Wii. I have a quick mind and a good sense of humour but I am not a humourous person, though I try.

Shadow Phoenix Takes Flight

Hi everyone!


My brand new young adult steampunk vigilante superhero serial launches online with Amazon today.


I’ve sent rumblings and grumblings and hints of this awesome new story over the past six months via my newsletter and social media, and it’s now available 😀


I would love to share Louisa’s story with you; how she’s caught between world, battles a bad habit of unlady-like cursing, and fights to write her own future in a time where steam and clockworks rule and bad-guys have cool monikers 😉


This is a “serial” ~ meaning the story will be published in novelette (long short story length) episodes of approx 6 chapters at a time. Each episode is a complete storyline from start to finish, like a comic book but without pictures. The overriding story links each episode toward a full volume, consisting of approx. 8 sections.


I am taking a feather from Charles Dickens’ hat and trying something new. I hope you’ll join me as Louisa’s story unfolds. Episode 1, Answering the Call is where it all begins.


Each episode is only .99c, and a new episode will be released every 2 months:



April 2019 – Episode I: Answering the Call

June – Episode II

August – Episode III

October – Episode IV

December – Episode V

February – Episode VI

April 2020  – Episode VII

June – Episode VIII













Goodreads Reviews!

A great introduction to MJ Moores new serialized work of fiction. The steampunk elements are immediately recognizable and add an element of intrigue into the story. Louisa […] is an interesting character who we immediately become invested in and by the end want to know what will become of her as the series continues. As always, MJ Moores’s talent for crafting a story is evident, through her creativity and believable characters. An excellent start to a new series that will keep you coming back for each episode as it’s released!

I am intrigued with Louisa. There is just enough backstory to make me curious and enough hints at where she might be headed that make me sorry that I need to wait for the next instalment. I’m going to enjoy having Louisa along during my commute.

FORGOTTEN FALLACY: The Chronicles of Xannia, Pt 4

Drum roll please…

Announcing the release of Forgotten Fallacy: The Chronicles of Xannia, Part 4 on Cyber Monday November 26th, 2018 on Kindle and in Print.



A cruel twist of fate slams Taya face-to-face with destiny.


When the south city discovers a major alien artifact, Taya is catapulted into a salvage mission she has no business being a part of. No matter how hard she tries to tell Dez something’s wrong… with her, he doesn’t listen. He breaks promises. And, worst of all, he doesn’t understand she’s not the same woman who stormed the Underground caverns all those months ago.


Now, as a group of Talian ex-military terrorise the new world, a leading environmental scientist claims the Child Sun is destroying Xannia. The sands of time have run out.


Plan A will destroy a god.


Plan B could unite a nation… or kill the only woman fated to try.
