NORM LANDERMAN-MOORE was born and raised in the Mojave desert, Sacramento Valley and Sierra Nevada mountains of California. He is the oldest of nine children, descended from Americas earliest families of Virginia during the 1620’s. He, along with seven High School friends, joined and served with the United States Marines during the Cold War. Later Norm received his undergraduate degree from The College of Environmental Design at California Polytechnic University, then went on with graduate work in Urban Economics and Law. After initial years of professional service in Land-Use Planning for planned communities and return from service with ARAMCO’s Planning Division in Saudi Arabia, he received a Career Executive Appointment from Governor Ronald Reagan as Chief Planner with the California State Resources Agency. Later Norm organized and founded a Strategic Planning firm, Landerman-Moore Associates, which served public agencies and private clients in the United States and abroad until 2010. Since retirement in the San Juan Islands, Norm emersed himself in genealogy. As a result of extensive family research, he began writing true accounts of ancestors which became the basis of creating three historical fiction novels, “Samuel of the Nations”, “Jaded Horses”, and “All But One”. Beyond novels now available to readers world-wide, Norm recently completed “Where Pelicans Fly”, and is working on, “Lioness of Gaza”, “Quindaro”, “The Eighth Heaven”, and “Scribblings” which will be published over the next few years. Among several accomplishments, Norm is an experienced long-distance sailor. Twice, he crossed the North Pacific Ocean from Hawaii to Newport Beach, California in a fifty-foot sailboat. Of those experiences Norm commented, “Out there, forces of nature reveal your limits!” … “You discover a reality. You are not invincible!”
