Whether you believe in ghosts or other aspects of the paranormal, every culture has its folklore, and many people have had an experience they simply can’t explain.
Kala Ambrose decided to investigate for herself and started with the great state of North Carolina. “Ghosthunting North Carolina,” recently released by Clerisy Press, examines 25 of the spookiest haunts, from restaurants and museums to parks and cemeteries, all over the Tar Heel State.
Ambrose explored more than 100 sites and narrowed the list to 25 based on three criteria: historical research that confirmed some of the details of the legend of the site, confirmation of ghost activity at the site over a generous span of time, and her personal experience at each of the sites.
Kala Ambrose is an intuitive empath, wisdom teacher, paranormal researcher, inspirational speaker and voice of “Explore Your Spirit with Kala” show. Ambrose is the author of “9 Life Altering Lessons: Secrets of the Mystery Schools Unveiled,” creator of a trilogy of sacred site meditation CDs and the National Metaphysical Spirituality Writer and the National Haunted History Writer for the Examiner. She is founder of the Rowan Society, a private organization that researches and explores paranormal phenomena. She currently resides in Cary.
