World Traveler and Author of high tales of adventure



  • In October, Warren's latest middle grade novel, The Bean Store, was released in two parts: The Map of Eternity and The Crystal Sea. Together, they tell the story of a ten-year-old boy named Jules, who goes on a remarkable adventure through a world filled with splendor.  See the full description below.



Out of Synch

Thirteen-year-old Katie Phillips dreams of reaching the U.S. Synchronized Swimming National Championships. But her sports-obsessed father wants her to quit the team to focus on swimming races to earn a college scholarship like her older brother Nick, a Florida state record holder.

When Katie's duet partner is seriously injured in a freak accident during practice, her determination to overcome her family's lack of support is put to the test as her life unravels around her. 


The Pirate of Janaconda Island

Twelve-year-old twins Lucy and Paddy Hendricks think they’re in for the worst summer of their lives when they arrive on Janaconda Island in June of 1949. There’s nothing to do and the rotted old mansion that will serve as their family’s home is filthy and littered with junk. But when they discover the house’s former owner was a notorious pirate who left behind cryptic clues to the location of stolen gold, they are swept into a dangerous adventure of discovery that tests the limits of their wits and courage.  


The Bean Store

Unlike his  classmates, ten-year-old Jules is dreading the upcoming summer. While  they're off having fun, he's sure his time will be spent performing  tedious chores in the family bean store, The Beanery.  Already he's  been tasked with sorting thousands of coffee beans just by their smell,  an impossible task that could take weeks. But when he captures a  pint-sized, trash-talking woodland troll under a gardening bucket, he is  drawn into a mystical world hidden deep in the woods behind his home, a  world full of unimaginable splendor--as well as immeasurable danger. 

The Bean Store is published in two parts: The Map of Eternity (shown) and The Crystal Sea, which relates the conclusion of Jules's adventure.
