Kenny Russ Warren
Kenny Russ Warren was born in Melfort, Saskatchewan, on April 2nd, 1938. His father was a Canadian National Railways station agent, so the family moved a lot and lived in apartments within the railway stations.
Kenny's youth was spent in cities and towns in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and British Columbia. He was both a pitcher and quarterback for high school teams in all three provinces. After stints in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and as a reporter with The Winnipeg Tribune, Kenny returned to the University of BC to complete his Bachelor of Arts, the University of Victoria for his Bachelor of Education, and Carleton University for a year of post grad journalism. He also worked part-time for city dailies in all three of those university cities: Vancouver, Victoria, and Ottawa.
It was however in Education and Government planning that Kenny Russ made his mark. After 30 successfully innovative years of teaching and career counseling young British Columbians and Californians, he retired early and journeyed to China where he taught for seven different years in seven different provinces of China. It was while teaching in China that Kenny Russ learned of the horrible crimes Japanese soldiers committed against Chinese civilians, mainly innocent women and children. It was a story that he felt had to be told, and, NORA and the Golden Dragon tells that story.

NORA and the Golden Dragon
by Kenny Russ Warren
Aspiring journalist Patrick Wilson travels to China to interview an elderly WWII heroine, Meiling Chan. He must persuade her to tell her story—painful memories she’s reluctant to share. Meiling was a victim of the Rape of Nanking: atrocities at the hands of Japanese invaders touched every member of Meiling’s family, including the traitor who became her greatest enemy: her own sister.
