About us

Founded in June 2011, Warnings Signs is your final destination for all things horror. Covering books, movies, TV, music and horror-related events, Warning Signs will bring you the best original reviews, opinions and analysis of all that goes bump in the night.

Founder and creator T.J. Tranchell was born on Halloween, has worked as a journalist, horror movie columnist, pizza delivery man, warehouse worker, haunted house monster, customer service clerk, college instructor, and other less glamorous jobs. Since starting Warning Signs, Tranchell has become a father, finally graduated from college and earned a Master's degree in Literature with, naturally, a focus on the horror genre.

Tranchell has published horror short fiction, is at work on his second novel, and is co-editor of GIVE: An Anthology of Anatomical Entries, a dark fiction anthology from When the Dead Books. He is a rising star among horror scholars, having presented work on Stephen King at the Popular Culture Association's national conference, and has been a panelist and interviewer at Crypticon Seattle. He currently teaches at the University of Idaho, where he serves as the Student Media Adviser.
