Ghostly Tales Review By Roanoke-Chowan News Herald


Unlucky Fishermen Turn To Writing

Ghostly Tales Review By Roanoke-Chowan News Herald by Cal Bryant | May 4, 2010


“Back in the late 70’s and early 80’s, Mike and I lived with our respective wives in Tarboro. We spent many lazy afternoons after work “wetting a line” in either Fishing Creek or Swift Creek, both in Edgecombe County.

Come to think of it, Mike wasn’t much of a fisherman (neither was I). Perhaps that’s the real reason both he and I chose writing as our profession…he in the book publishing business while yours truly chose newspaper journalism.

Mike (I can’t bring myself to call him Michael) will be in Ahoskie on May 15 to promote his new book. He has scheduled a book signing at Catherine’s Restaurant beginning at 6 p.m. From Ahoskie he is scheduled to spend the next week along North Carolina’s coast to promote his latest work.

Mike, ever the good friend, sent me a copy of his new book. I’ve always been intrigued by a good old ghost story and Mike’s work didn’t leave me disappointed. I’m aware of some of the ghostly tales he mentioned, but there were many that I’ve never heard of before.

There are many other ghostly tales from the local area, as well as those from Dare, Currituck, Edgecombe, Hyde, Brunswick, Craven, Gates, Johnston, Halifax, Chowan and Wilson counties.

Apparently, Mike has found his true calling as a writer. He has turned over 30 years of investigating and collecting stories of the paranormal into a passion for leading a reader by the hand and becoming engrossed in these intriguing tales.”
