Alan L Moss is a unique and emerging voice in the thriller genre. His published novels spin
sophisticated tales of conspiracy, love, sex, revenge, and subterfuge. Two distinguishing
features of Alan's novels are involvement with significant national and international issues
and remarkable settings.
The Samoa Seduction tells the story of two strong willed individuals haunted
by their love for one another while manipulated by a deadly conspiracy. Efforts to head off
minimum wage increases and corrupt pharmaceutical company research form the backdrop for this
exciting adventure. Exotic settings include locations in the South Pacific's American Samoa,
Hawaii, and New Zealand.
This novel draws upon Alan's experience in American Samoa administering federal wage
hearings and getting to know the Samoan people and their lush island of Tutuila. His Ph. D.
research capabilities provided entry to the wage and drug issues involved.
Alan has been a federal Chief Economist for the U.S. Department of Labor, Congressional
Fellow in the U.S. Senate for the late Senator Frank R. Lautenberg, and Adjunct Instructor
at the University of Virginia's Northern Virginia Center. In 2002, he put his government career
aside and moved to the Jersey Shore to pursue his writing.
Two previous novels published in 2012 and 2014, Insidious Deception
and its sequel, Surviving The Endgame involve conflict in the Middle East and
U.S. presidential elections. The Middle East peace plan introduced in Insidious Deception
was developed by Dr. Moss through his participation in a Washington, D.C. Dialogue conducted
by the Policy Studies Organization of the American Political Science Association.
Alan's non-fiction offerings include Selling-Out America's Democracy
(Praeger 2008) and Employment Opportunity (Prentice-Hall 2000).
