THIS IS A STORY behind the story that Curt and Ana Warner never wanted to tell.
My involvement started in the fall of 2014, when I received a cryptic email from Curt Warner regarding “ … the possibility of writing a book.” Absent details, the message had the brevity of an old-time telegram, and sounded like a mysterious summonsing.
Curt had fashioned a brilliant career as a running back with the Seahawks in the 1980s, but few knew much about his post-NFL life. Didn’t he have a car dealership, and then moved away somewhere? I was intrigued enough to investigate, and was soon sitting at the kitchen table of the Warners’ house in Camas, in southwest Washington.
