Bob Moore: No Hero - Tom Andry

Author Bio:
Tom Andry is the Associate Editor of and host of the AV Rant podcast. He’s been writing mostly reviews but has lately returned to his prose roots. He has written many unpublished short stories, poems, and a few screenplays that may still be produced. He’s the father of three boys affectionately nicknamed Punkalicious, Captain Evil, and Neo. He’s happily married and currently resides in Perth, Australia. His background is in drama, creative writing, and research psychology which basically means his kids are in for a pretty rough time. His wife, Tanel, doesn’t have it so easy either.

Product description:

Super powered humans started appearing 30 years ago. Now, they are everywhere. Bob Moore, Private Eye, dares to investigate those who could incinerate him with a thought. When he is called to help a super from his past, however, he'll be pushed to his limit. When supers and the police think there is no crime, can he get to the truth? Will he want to for the man that destroyed his marriage?

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
So for I've gotten very positive reviews about the story, characters, and pacing. Readers have found the setting unique enough to be interesting but familiar enough to be comfortable. The characters have been engaging and the story believable, even in an unbelievable world. 

Q: Why did you go indie?
Bob Moore: No Hero is my first book. One of the main reasons I didn't finish a novel before was dealing with the gatekeepers. With eBooks, that gatekeeper was gone. I couldn't put it off any longer and went for it.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
I have lots of favorite authors but I haven't read many in the superhero novel genre. I think the author that most writes characters like Bob is Steven Brust but his character, Vlad, is much more powerful.

  1. Thanks for the interview. It was great fun. I will add that I've been reading Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files books since this interview and they've also been in a similar vein. Again, Dresden has considerable power while Bob has none (nor will he) but the feel of the books is definitely similar.
