In this third novel by D. C. Moses, Second thoughts: Second Chances, the author has once again drawn upon a cornucopia of impressions and personalities gathered after decades of living in a dozen states from coast-to-coast across the nation. Most recently, D. C. Moses spent several years producing and helping direct investor communications for a well-known LA real estate investment firm. She came to this position from a sharply contrasting background of high school and college teaching of English and creative writing, twice heading up departments. Previous to her academic career, she managed an advertising copy department at a Fairbanks, Alaska, TV station. She is a holder of an MA in creative writing from the University of Iowa and a former graduate of Antioch College. She presently makes her home in the Midwest.
