XIN: Reviews from various sites

 Amazing story. I am a fan already. Excellent writing style too. I was caught up in it right away.
  Thanks so much for sharing.
 This story is awesome! Rob G. Moons creates an epic series about an alien from another planet on
  a galaxy sized adventure.
This story is part Star Wars, Star Trek, Starship Troopers, StarCraft, and everything that makes a
  space adventure story awesome.
Work of genius. Had me captivated completely, I would put you right up there with the likes of
  Robert Heinlein. Please keep writing.
This is amazing. i absolutely LOVE this. Please keep doing more. This is flipping amazing.
Very good story! Could be a movie.

Lex Talionis – Blood in the Alley won an Honorable Mention Award from Authorstand.com short
  story
contest. (The same award the first chapter of XIN: The Veiled Genocides won two years ago.)

The Lex Talionis short stories is a series that will continue the main character's adventure, each
  adding to
character development. It would be best to read them in sequence, but not absolutely
  necessary. Being a fan of the writings of Robert E. Howard (Conan, Solomon Kane), I was inspired
  to write this series of short stories.

The Lex Talionis short stories will be continued in the future, but at this time I will be concentrating
  on a guitar instruction book and other short stories. Look for more adventures of Lex in 2014.
Seagulls Love Donuts is the third in a series of children's stories. This story is also being made
   into an animated short film. This is months off but will update on the film's progress here.

Cat Stories that Dogs Tell is my first illustrated children's book. Something I have wanted to do for
   a long time. See also the youtube narrated version, where it's getting good hits.
Hope you like it.
The Hunger and the Cold is a story written for Halloween as part of a horror writing contest on
   authorstand.com. It won a horror story contest on writing.com.
While My Guitar Gently Screams is another horror story. This story should be of interest to horror
  fans and guitar players alike.

I have been quoted on several computer related sites! A line from XIN: The Veiled Genocides:

My Writing:
I'm from the "Twilight Zone" generation. I'm the guy observing the human race from the outside looking in.
I love to write the kinds of stories I would want to read, or see as a film, and I'm hoping that others will too.
I love twists, surprises and sometimes things that just come out of nowhere, but that still have a logical
connection to things that have been introduced earlier. At the end of the story, all the pieces should come
together like a jigsaw puzzle, and hopefully it will leave the reader with a satisfying conclusion. I try to avoid
the usual overworked plots. Instead, I endeavour to come up with something more original. My stories
start with a creative idea I think is worth exploring. I will not restrict myself with genres, although most of
my work would be in the speculative fiction category. The idea comes first, then the genres will be selected
that I believe will be the best vehicle to present and explore the idea. It could be a science fiction, fantasy,
action, humour, adventure, horror, etc., and any combination of two or more of these.
