Stairway of the Gods takes readers on a magical journey to the Philippines and the heartland of its people in the Cordillera Mountains. Warren's tale of skullduggery unfolds on the slopes of the Banaue rice terraces when Paul and Joan Webster are trapped in the village after an earthquake. Paul is hospitalized and Joan is left alone to protect one of the most important discoveries of the Twentieth century-a treasure of gold and precious artifacts hidden in a cave during World War II-that some would kill for.

About the Author


With a phenomenal career that started out writing and designing over 100 children's books published with Scholastic and McGraw-Hill, as well as a Clio award-winning advertising career, Vic Warren was ready for a new writing challenge.

Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Warren was drawn to the Philippines for many reasons. Before starting his advertising career, he met two Filipino brothers who invited him into their extended family. From that moment forward, Vic developed a close bond with the Filipino community and traveled to the Philippines. He was fascinated with tribal art from the Cordillera Mountains that he found in the marketplaces of Manila and Baguio. With the idea of starting an import business, he brought several boxes of artifacts back to Seattle. His research gave him a deeper understanding of the art and culture of the Cordillera-sometimes referred to as the Sierras of the Philippines.

Warren is a recipient of a Clio award and is best known for creating the Alaska Airlines Eskimo logo. His experience with Alaska Airlines opened many doors for him in the travel and tourism industry and he started his own company called Turning Heads. He also became a book packager, editor, designer and writer in collaboration with several illustrators, producing more than 100 children's books. He attended the San Francisco Academy of Art, majoring in graphic design and art direction. Warren is an avid traveler to Asia, Europe and the South Pacific.

Warren is currently at work on two more novels. Saffron, a sci-fi adventure that reads like mainstream fiction deals with the discovery of a race of underwater humans off today's California coast; and Hong Kong Blues, which takes a newly-married couple through the streets of Hong Kong in a Hitchcock-style thriller.

Warren lives in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii with his wife, Laurel, and their three-legged cat, Oscar. To learn more about his novels, Stairway of the Gods, Saffron and Hong Kong Blues, please visit
