October’s Hallowed Authors: Micheal Rivers

I’m not a native North Carolina girl but I’m adapting at lightening speed. The Carolinas are rich with history, Southern comfort i.e. foods, hospitality, and supernatural lore. What’s not to love? And one of North Carolina’s home-grown Paranormal Thriller authors, Micheal Rivers, has become my go-to source for haunting, evocative tales. I recently joined a group of ghost hunters who frequent North and South Carolina paranormal hotspots, which makes Micheal’s books even more enjoyable because of the familiar geographical settings. So, first on my list of  October Hallowed Authors is Micheal Rivers, an author who should be on your list of “must read” authors.

Click on the cover art to read a blurb of each book. Appalachia Mountain Folklore will be released in November but you can save $$ by pre-ordering now.



Micheal, an American author, was born in Ahoskie, North Carolina in 1953. He served his country during the Vietnam War in the USMC. Later, his travels provided over thirty years of investigating and collecting stories of the paranormal. His genres include horror and thriller with an element of paranormal in all of his novels. The Smokey Mountain Ghost Trackers of Western North Carolina was founded by him and he is the lead investigator. Micheal currently resides in the mountains of North Carolina along with the love of his life and his Boxer he fondly calls Dee Dee.

    Deb, your feature was quite a pleasant surprise, thank you! Thanks to all who visited and left a comment as well. Appalachia Mountain Folklore will be released Nov. 28th. This non-fiction collection will have 40 ghostly tales that intertwine the customs and beliefs of the Native Americans and Europeans that settled in Western North Carolina.

    Thanks for sharing about Micheal Rivers. I’ve recently read Moonlight on the Nanthala and loved it. This book is not one of his scariest but it still has the paranormal theme throughout. Plus the scenery that he describes reminds me of my time spent in Virginia which isn’t far from the Carolinas.
