Stories by J. L. Warnock: In Grandfather We Trust from the book Tales of What May Come

November 3, 2020

In Grandfather We Trust is a story from the book Tales of What May Come, which presents future possibilities: strange new sources of knowledge, coming family issues, future dystopia, new laws and new crimes, and the trend toward educational provincialism. In each story lies a kernel of current truth, or perhaps truth yet to be, or even a warning of what may come.

Tales of What May Come can be purchased on amazon.

Stories by J. L. Warnock Cold Streets from the book Disquieting Notions

November 2, 2020

If you're the kind of reader who likes the occasional creepy, skin-crawly type of story that makes you look back over your shoulder or sleep with the lights on you'll enjoy these "disquieting" tales. Homicidal maniacs, twisted doctors, murderous misogynists, assorted tortured souls and even evil incarnate inhabit these pages. Perhaps you will recognize someone you know or, Heaven forbid, yourself. So dim your lights, or better yet, read these accounts by candlelight and allow the flickering flame to cast threatening shadows on the walls around you. You are sure to find something to titillate or terrify.

Cold Streets is from the book Disquieting Notions by J. L. Warnock and can be purchased at Magnolia Scents by Design, 106 N Pennsylvania Ave, Independence, KS 67301 or by calling (620) 331-8900. Check out their website: Magnolia Scents by Design

J. L. Warnock, Author, Independence, Kansas

Born in 1949 near an Air Force base in New York State, J. L. Warnock served 4 years in Army Military Intelligence doing technical work with the highest security classifications. He married in 1970.

After leaving the service in 1972, he earned a Bachelors degree in education in New York. He and his wife Peggy came to Independence, Kansas in 1974. They each earned Master’s degrees in education in 1980.

He retired after nearly 30 years of teaching everything from third grade through post graduate level aerospace classes. He became a volunteer reader at a local bookstore and began to think about writing. He has produced short stories in several genres.

J.L. divides his time between senior aerobics classes, flying his homebuilt airplane, and hours spent at the computer keyboard, writing, always writing. He has so far produced three novels, one children’s book, one collection of short horror stories, one collection of short science fiction stories, and two “cleverly disguised” Memoirs.

Joe Warnock passed away November 1, 2020 and he is missed by many, including the staff of the Independence Public Library.
