Chris Moore (otherwise known as C.G. Moore) is a freelance YA editor and marketer. He was born in Ireland and now lives in Manchester. His debut YA novel, Fall Out, was published by UCLan Publishing in spring 2020. Based on personal experience, Chris Moore’s Gut Feelings is a life-affirming and powerful coming of age verse novel that shines a light on chronic illness, who we are and how we live. Chris’s condition – familial adenomatous polyposis, an inherited disorder characterised by the rapid growth of small, precancerous polyps in the large intestines – would come to define all aspects of his future, from his everyday life to his personal relationships. Gut Feelings is Chris’s brave story of how he attempted to come to terms with this devasting diagnosis as a teenager.
