Ken Warner grew up reading fantasy and science fiction. His first experiences in these genres included The Chronicles of Narnia and The Hobbit. Early in his high school years, he began training in martial arts. Right away he started hearing legends of martial arts masters who could use their internal chi energy to accomplish seemingly supernatural feats. This mythology always fascinated him and he wished someone would incorporate it into an epic fantasy story. Nobody ever did, so finally in 2006 he took it upon himself.
Ken wrote Katana Shodan: The Scroll of the Five Masters in November of that year. He followed it up with the second book, Katana Nidan: The Unwritten Koan in December. Since then he has completed all five books in the series.
Ken has practiced various martial arts for 30 years–including kempo, kung fu, and tai chi. He holds a 5th degree black belt in kempo karate. He graduated from Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT in 1993 with a BA in English and astronomy. He has taught martial arts professionally ever since. From 2006 to 2012, Ken served as the assistant coach for 100 Percent Performance, one of the top sport karate teams in the country. Members of the team won numerous world championships in forms, weapons, and team demo.
