“Captivating readers with a suspenseful spin, his newest book is set on the Appalachian Trail and a maximum-security prison. Warner weaves a story of risk, revenge, murder and chance.”

“Ex-FBI agent writes about getting truth…”

“No one knows about lie detector tests quite like William J. Warner.”

William, better known as Bill to friends and associates, was born in Bryan, Ohio. He grew up an only-child developing small town friendships with people whose Midwest values he cherishes to this day. He currently resides in northeast Indiana.


Following a tour of duty with the 82nd Airborne Division, Bill made his way through college with a business degree from the University of Cincinnati. From there, he landed in Atlanta surviving evening law school while raising a family. One thing led to another and before he knew it, he was back in the Midwest serving out a thrilling career as an FBI Special Agent. Working violent crime and toting a polygraph instrument became his expertise.


Carrying a badge for over 25 years took him coast-to-coast and to faraway places like Bogota, Niarobi, Kampala, and Abu Dhabi. He yearned however, to settle down and write—and write he did beginning in 2012.


Like so many authors, life’s experiences contribute greatly to the premise, the plots, and the storytelling in his writings. Weaving fact with fiction, he focuses on fictional crime stories but often with a flavor of romance. Unafraid to venture off, however, he spun out a 600-page love & war novel, Jewels In The Sand in 2018.


Bill’s alignment with Peppertree Press has been one of a great cohesive relationship. His books are available through Peppertree, Amazon, and bookstores everywhere by special order. Better yet, get your signed copy of any of his books directly from Bill by emailing him at

“Holdup Number Six is extraordinary because it is written by a former FBI agent who uses his expertise to relate a based-on-fact tale of botched robberies that is both sadly funny and filled with suspense until the very end. These guys would be a hoot if there weren’t real predators like them.”

—Mark H. Newhouse
