About Gary

Gary C. Warne is an avid aviation enthusiast and military historian with a keen interest in World War One. His initial interest was piqued when he learned both of his grandfathers served in the First World War, and his uncle gave him a model of a World War One airplane when he was eight. Since then, he has studied all aspects of history but found he was most passionate about World War One.

His career as a writer began while he was still in high school and was a founding member of a comedy troupe. The exposure to live audiences and television appearances lent themselves to numerous situations to write about and develop into routines to use in the troupe's stage act. He attended The Ohio State University studying communications. It was at OSU that the troupe developed their most notable characters, came to the attention of the manager of WFCO TV in Mansfield, Ohio and were hired as the hosts of the television station’s new Friday Night Fright Flicks. Television gave Gary additional opportunities to expand his writing ability and he was soon engaged doing news copy and commercial production. He began to angle his work toward radio broadcasting and writing humorous material to use on the air. Over the years, his writing skills, as well as voice and production talents, have garnered numerous Mercury, Addy, Ellis, and Sunny awards. His writing also extended to song parodies, and in several markets, his songs were featured in rotation on area radio stations. He eventually became the morning show co-host of WOCL FM in Orlando.

Recognizing that digital was the wave of the future for the radio broadcasting industry, Gary got a degree in Computer Technology from Florida Technical College in 2002 and used his new digital skills to expand his talent for writing copy and added doing online voice work with a home studio. He will be the first to admit that the computer and the Internet have opened vast pools of information for doing research for his current and future novels and works of non-fiction.  When not found prowling nearby libraries and book stores, or lurking around air shows and aviation museums, Gary relaxes by singing and playing in a band. His experiences in the music industry and rock groups provides the grist for his next book about a rock ‘n roll band called Curses.

Gary lives in Altamonte Springs, Florida with his wife, Cheryl.
