Moore, an Associate Professor of Writing and Coordinator of Humanities for the School of Arts and Sciences, published The Unseen World in July 2016. The book has received praise from The Washington Post, New York Times, and the Boston Globe, among other news and book entities.

The Unseen World tells the story of Ada Sibelius, the daughter of David, an eccentric and socially inept single father who runs a computer lab located in Boston. Ada joins David during his daily work—becoming a protégé along the way. While David's lab begins to gain success, questions regarding his past start to surface. With David's mind failing, Ada is determined to discover her father's secrets.

"I'm delighted to have been included on these lists,” Moore said. “The publishing industry has changed dramatically in the past several years, so any additional publicity helps a great deal with book sales. More than that, though, it is still thrilling to know that people are reading and enjoying what I've written."
