ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Warren Walter first read The Adventures of Tom Sawyer in a sixth grade classroom. For a kid trapped in a quiet and often boring small town, Twain's vivid characters, adventurous plot, and near perfect description of that time in life when carefree youth starts to give way to adulthood were a revelation. His enjoyment of Twain's story and characters stayed with Warren and he often wondered how they would translate to a contemporary setting. Guided by this wonder, Warren wrote in bits and pieces in dozens of coffee shops and libraries over several years, slowly fleshing out his adaptation. The result, The Exploits of Sam Towery, is a compelling novel that addresses many of the same themes and reimagines several key plot points (including getting caught skipping school, whitewashing the fence, the murder in the graveyard, running away, and the ultimate confrontation with the main antagonist) in a completely new way. Warren hopes readers of all ages will explore his story which stands on its own as a tale of adventure, comedy, suspense, relationships, and transformation. He also hopes his story inspires a new generation of readers to explore Twain's original novel so they too can develop an appreciation of the literary classic.
