Upcoming Events

The Friends of the Linwood Library present local author Alan L. Moss on Tuesday, April 4th at 12:oo pm.

Lunch will be served immediately following our speaker. Tickets for lunch are $10.00.

Call 926-7991 ext.3 or stop in the library to register.


Alan L. Moss is a unique and emerging voice in the thriller genre. His novels spin sophisticated tales of conspiracy, love, sex, and subterfuge. In his latest work, The Samoa Seduction, two strong willed individuals are haunted by their love for one another while being manipulated by a deadly conspiracy.

Alan’s writing draws upon Ph. D. research capabilities and many years in Washington, D.C. as a federal Chief Economist, Congressional Fellow, and Adjunct Instructor at the University of Virginia’s Northern Virginia Center. In 2002 he put his government career aside and moved to the Jersey Shore to pursue his writing. He has penned six published books, four novels and two nonfiction works. After years of politics and bureaucracy, Alan has found the freedom of writing an intoxicating and satisfying calling.
