Warren Adler

Warren Adler has written thirty-three novels including The War of The Roses that was made into a movie with Michael Douglas and Random Hearts that was likewise made into a movie with Harrison Ford.

Warren started an unprecedented bidding war in a Hollywood commission for his unpublished book Private Lies which according to the New York Post “Tri-State Pictures outbid Warner Bros and Columbia, and purchased the film rights to Private Lies for $1.2 million… the highest sums yet paid in Hollywood for an unpublished manuscript.”

He has also written short story collections and in stories from his collection The Sunset Gang became an American Playhouse three-hour television production in 1991 and 1992 and an off Broadway Play. His most recent novel, The Serpent's Bite has been released and is available in hardback and e-book formats on Amazon. Warren is also a regular contributor to the Huffington Post.
