About the Author
In his first novel, Stairway of the Gods, Warren took the legendary story of Japanese officer, General Tomoyuki Yamashitawho is rumored to have buried priceless spoils of war in the Philippines just before the end of World War IIand turned it into riveting fiction. Warren's tale of skullduggery unfolds on the slopes of the Banaue rice terraces when an earthquake reveals Yamashita's treasure, and Joan and Paul Webster are stuck on the mountain. When Joan is faced with trying to keep the discovery secret, they find themselves confronted with deceit, betrayal and murder.
Saffron, his second book, is a sci-fi adventure that reads like mainstream fiction. It deals with the discovery of a race of underwater humans off today's California coast. Saffron is the first in a new series of books Warren is calling The Neptune Chronicles.
His third novel,Hong Kong Blues, is a Hitchcock-style thriller about a newly-married couple being chased through the streets of Hong Kong by two competing Triads desperate to hear a dying man's last words. The early response to some of the characters encouraged him to create a spinoff series, The Inspector Kwong Mysteries. He has finished the first two novellas in the series, The Quartz and The River, and is working on number three, The Fog.
He is currently at work on Girl on a Dolphin,Book Two of The Neptune Chronicles. He lives in San Diego with his wife, Laurel. To learn more about his novels, please visit www.vicwarren.com.
