James B. Moore is the author of Spirit Unchained, a collection of storytelling poetry influenced by such disparate figures as Charles Bukowski, Robinson Jeffers, and Wanda Coleman. Audiences will appreciate its transformative, soul-searching vulnerability. Moore lives in Shoreline, WA with his wife, Esther Andrews-Moore.

Watch Moore read from his third poetry collection, Open Heart Chronicles, at Arundel Books.

You are about to meet a man by reading over forty years of his writings. In many ways, it is neither an easy introduction nor a comfortable journey. You will not be meeting the man as the person he is—you will be experiencing his process of becoming. Seeing this book as the story of a poet, or of a man, would miss much of the work’s meaning. It is more than a collection of poems, more than a way of life. What we have in Spirit Unchained is the autobiography of a soul.
— Phil Bevis, Chatwin Books publisher and editor
