Don't be fooled by the scenic beauty of North Carolina's Piedmont Triad—the ghosts of the past haunt these rolling hills and unique cities. From the smallpox-stricken ghost that haunts Salem Tavern in Winston-Salem to the slain Revolutionary War soldiers who linger in the park surrounding Guilford Courthouse in Greensboro, these phantoms all have a tale to tell. Some ghosts even support education. Take Jane, the lonely spinster who haunts Aycock Auditorium at the UNC–Greensboro campus, or Herschel, High Point University's ghost of the former Memorial Theater. And though Spookywoods Haunted Attraction in Kersey Valley often frightens and astounds, some of the resident ghosts aren't just special effects. Join Camel City Spirit Seekers Michael Renegar and Amy Spease as they reveal the eerie and chilling stories from the heart of the Piedmont.

Michael Renegar was raised in East Bend, N.C, where he still resides. He is an avid guitarist, songwriter and student of history. Sherry Holley, niece of rock 'n' roll founding father Buddy Holly, has recorded some of his music. Michael grew up listening to relatives and tell ghost stories and has since set out to record as many of these old legends as possible. He attended Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C. Michael is a model photographer and the co-founder of Camel City Spirit Seekers, a ghost investigative group based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He is the author of two previous collections of North Carolina ghost stories. Amy Spease is a native of Winston-Salem. She still lives there with her husband, David, and two children, Rocky and Jade. She is an eclectic soul and collects many things, from odd antiques to 1950s tableware. Amy is part American Indian and embraces that heritage. She is an artist and has also been an alternative model since 2005. Her love of ghosts and the paranormal has been a huge part of her life since childhood, and she adores her home state and its rich history and ghostlore. She is the co-founder of Camel City Spirit Seekers.
