Radio Personality

Warren is the host of the trust crime history radio show House of Mystery. The show has gained popularity, and this led to a spin-off series in 2020 called The House of Mystery Fiction, which covers the writing process for authors of fiction books. The show began in 2013 on KFNX 1100 A.M. in Phoenix on Saturdays at 6 A.M. It was later picked up by KKNW 1150 A.M. in Seattle/Tacoma on Fridays at 4 pm. This led to his current contract with NBC KCAA 106.5 F.M. Los Angeles/102.3 F.M. Riverside/1050 A.M.

But with the pandemic, Warren has been recording his radio shows at home. The show is available on platforms such as YouTube, Apple Podcasts,[3] iTunes, Podbay, IHeart Media/Spreaker, and many others.[4] Warren's current contract is with NBC news talk radio in Los Angeles (KCAA 106.5 F.M. Los Angeles/ 102.3 F.M. Riverside/1050 A.M. Palm Springs/ 540 A.M. Salt Lake City).


Warren started writing articles for True Crime Case Files magazine and Serial Killer Magazine which led to writing his first book Above Suspicion, the true story of Russell Williams serial killer which became a Best Seller now in its second edition for RJ Parker Publishing in Toronto, Canada.[1] Warren has 20 books published since then including the Killing Game for WildBlue Press which has been used for several true crime shows. He has also co-written a book with Peter Vronsky. His bestselling books are Above Suspicion, ‘Deadly Betrayal, Blood Thirst,[5] and Last Man Standing.[6][7]

Many true crime shows have been made based on Warren’s books. His book The Killing Game has a television show called Murder Made Me Famous, which streams on Reelz Network. Another show Mark of a Killer, based on this book, has been produced by Oxygen Network. Many radio shows have also been conducted based on Warren’s books.[8]

They had met in 1998 while Warren was working in Portland, Oregon, and Gary Warren was living semi-retired from his NASCAR driving career. Alan was diagnosed with a "high-functioning" type of ASD (autism spectrum disorder) which has given him extra challenges to work with work on radio and writing.
