Life and career

As a child, Mór was diagnosed on the autism spectrum, which was kept a secret from the wider public until disclosed in his autobiography A Blessing and a Curse; Autism and Me (2007). Recurring themes in Mór's novels include religion, theology, gods and deities, magic, kingship and ancient times. His books are set in Ireland, Scotland and a personal interpretation of the Celtic Otherworld which he refers to as the Far Country.

His latest album Dreaming Tree - The Green Album was released in February 2013. His latest book is the non fiction What is Magic?, published in September 2009.

Mór makes tribal style drums from recycled materials, and holds workshops on trance drumming using these musical art objects. Mór now tours the world offering musical dreaming events with his band (formed in 2012) Dreaming Tree. They present full night experiences and also hold three day retreats. In July 2013, Mór toured Sweden.

There are two projects Mór is working on; his latest self-published album Prana, and expanded re-releases of his first book trilogy (the Wanderers Trilogy) as ebooks, with limited edition signed and numbered hard copies. Both projects are self-published and can be found on indiegogo.com.
