Bruce Orr was raised in the Lowcountry of South Carolina and grew up hunting and fishing the plantations of Berkeley County with his father and brothers. As he grew into an adult, a natural curiosity in seeking the facts brought him into law enforcement, where he eventually became a detective and a supervisor within his agency's Criminal Investigative Division. Now retired, he uses the skills he obtained in his career to research the legends and lore that he grew up with. After his first book in 2010, he developed a company called Lost in Legend in order to research, record and preserve the folklore and legends of the South Carolina Lowcountry, and the history behind them, for future generations.
