It is FOR and ABOUT authors. Here we shine the light on authors who we’ve read, reviewed and recommend to others. In this edition we are shining our light on another gifted author...
Dijorn Moss was born and raised in Carson, California. Like most boys in Carson, he wanted to play for the Lakers. Despite being tall, he had zero athletic ability. His parents taught him that if he wanted something in life, then he had to be willing to work hard for it and not make excuses. They did not just talk to me about hard, they both modeled hard work. After the age of 10, Dijorn spent five years at a nonpublic school. It was difficult for him being teased for not going to a regular school like the rest of the kids in the neighborhood, but he found a love for writing and basically wrote his way out of nonpublic school. He later went on to graduate from San Jose State in with a degree in English.
Dijorn is the author of “The Retreat,” “The Retreat 2,” and “My Father’s House.” He and his are living the good life in South Gate.
