Rocky Mountain Writer #38

Warren Hammond & The KOP Series, The Tides of Maritinia

 

Warren Hammond is the author of the KOP series of novels -- KOP, Ex-KOP, and KOP Killer -- as well as the standalone The Tides of Maritinia. The first three mash up mystery and sci-fi, the standalone Tides is more of a spy thriller set in a watery, distant planet.

On the podcast, Hammond talks about the inspiration for the KOP series and getting the rights back and re-publishing them, with new covers from an artist from Italy.

Warren Hammond grew up in the Hudson River Valley of New York State. Upon obtaining his teaching degree from the University at Albany, he moved to Colorado, and settled in Denver where he can often be found typing away at one of the local coffee shops.

Always eager to see new places, Warren has traveled extensively. Whether it’s wildlife viewing in exotic locales like Botswana and the Galapagos Islands, or trekking in the Himalayas, he's always up for a new adventure.

This podcast includes a reading from The Tides of Maritinia.
