Meet Author: Ebony Moore
Empowering Children with Valuable Life SkillsEbony Moore is an author/illustrator with over 40 titles in print. Moore developed a love for writing and illustrating when she was five years old and has been writing every since that time. Moore has created books in a variety of genres.
After experiencing financial crisis that led to homelessness, she was inspired to publish her first novel, "In the Fire, the Beginning", in 2006, a fictitious account of an African American family’s struggle to survive and overcome various trials and tribulations. Growing up in an impoverished community and broken home inspired Moore to pour into the lives of both children and parents. In 2007, Moore wrote and illustrated “It Is Not Polite To Be A Bully” , ”When I Am Sad,” “When I Believe,” “When My Parents Argue” and “My Favorite Color Is...”
Her desire to help make a difference in the lives of children was still unsatisfied, so In 2008, Moore concluded a series of children’s books called “The Mya Collection” which includes “Earning and Saving Money”, “Fire Safety With Roy” , “Mya Meets Barack Obama” , “Grandma’s House” , “I Can Be” , “When I Am Adopted” , “When I Told A Lie” , “This Is The Way We Count To Ten” , “The Book Of ABC’s” , “The Books Of Shapes” and “The Book Of Numbers.”
After suffering from sensorineural hearing loss in her right ear, bed-ridden and recovering from a stroke that affected an auditory nerve on the right side of her brain, her inspiration only grew stronger, pushing Moore to birth “The Learning Life Skills With Mya Character Education Series”, a series of 19 books designed to aid parents and teachers in delivering life skills to preschool and elementary children.
Having unlocked the shackles of poverty, Moore longed to persuade and encourage others to overcome similar situations. In 2011, she wrote an empowering self-help spiritual book called “The Time Is Now: Activating Kingdom Wealth In Your Life” which motivates and helps people of all ages discover purpose and propel into their divine destiny. She readily attributes all her success to God who is the source of all her resources.
Concerned about children’s safety during the massive tornadoes that hit the United States in 2012, Moore also created “Tornado Safety With Roy.” And Moore is responsible for the creation of Mya Kids, LLC (www.myakids.com), a global provider of children books and the creator of the cartoon character “MYA.” Moore is also founder of The Mya Foundation, a foundation that promotes literacy and provides learning resources for economically distressed children.
