Moore was born in Oxford, England. Her father was a professor of mathematics at the University of Oxford, and her mother was a teacher. She went to primary school in Oxford, then went to the Worcester Grammar School for Girls (since 1983 the Worcester Sixth Form College) on Spetchley Road in Worcester, when her parents divorced. Since the divorce, she has not heard from her father. At school, she always wanted to be a journalist, but was told by her teachers that 'it was no job for a lady'. She studied journalism at the South Glamorgan Institute of Higher Education (now Cardiff Metropolitan University) in Cardiff, then trained at the Solihull News in 1981, moving to work full-time at the Birmingham Mail and Birmingham Post.
