Gary Moreau grew up in a small town in Iowa called Estherville. He discovered science fiction in the fifth grade, beginning with a book by Alan E. Nourse entitled “Star Surgeon”. He graduated from medical school at the University of Iowa and then completed a residency in emergency medicine at Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center. Following his training, he practiced emergency medicine at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center. It is not likely that he became a physician because of Nourse’s book, but it was the beginning of a life long love
of science fiction. His plans for the future include a focus on his passion for story telling. “ He and his wife Gloria have two daughters, two son-in-laws, and five grandchildren. His greatest joys in life include family, friends, writing, art, and travel.
During his last semester as an undergraduate at the University of Iowa, he took a course in art history. He started painting later that semester and has never stopped. His art is not an avocation, it has been a lifelong passion. The majority of his paintings are tempra (not egg-tempra) on paper, although in the last few years he has switched to gouache.
