|About the Author|
Stephen L. Moore, a sixth generation Texan, graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, where he studied advertising, marketing and journalism. He currently serves as the marketing and advertising director for a Dallas-area electronics manufacturer.
Steve originally collaborated with SFA professor Bob Gruebel and Confederate Air Force historian Bill Shinneman to write The Buzzard Brigade: Torpedo Squadron Ten at War. His second book, Taming Texas, was a biography of his great-great-great grandfather William T. Sadler--who was one of the first Texas Ranger captains in 1836, a veteran of the Battle of San Jacinto, a Texas legislator and a leader during the Texas Indian Wars.
Steve lives north of Dallas in Lantana, Texas, with his wife Cindy and their three children: Kristen, Emily and Jacob.
