Julian Moss was born and raised in Woking, Surrey in England. After earning his Bachelor's Degree in Visual Communications, he moved to London to learn acting. He appeared in a number of British shows and commercials. Julian then moved to Los Angeles, California, where he writes and produces feature films. He has written a dozen feature screen plays, made three successful short films as writer/director, and produced two feature films. Now Julian has ventured into the world of writing novels which he feels is a "natural progression for screenwriters." He explains, "Story telling is really my passion."
Julian's first year of embarking on his new author career has produced two books that are very compelling. Wide Boy$, his first novel, is about two men who try to gain respectability after living a life on the edge. They move from England to Los Angeles to open a pub, but it didn't go exactly as planned. What Passing Bells is Julian's most recent novel. It is an historical novel based on the experiences of a young man from Wales during World War I including the uneasy relationships between Adolph Hitler and his fellow soldiers. Although the story is fictionalized, it is based on facts of that period of time.
