My book, Ghosthunting North Carolina is haunting the news again. 🙂 P.M. Terrell of the Robesonian newspaper in Lumberton, NC wrote a wonderful article about the book, featuring the stories covered in Eastern North Carolina including the Lost Colony of Roanoke. She writes …
“Ghosthunting North Carolina” is part of the America’s Haunted Road Trip series. Unlike most ghostly tales in which we hear only the myths, Ambrose provides us with each story’s historical backdrop. Being a history buff, I found this particularly interesting. And not surprisingly, one of the most fascinating stories she tells is of the Lost Colony of Roanoke.”
“Anyone who has lived in Robeson County for very long has heard the tale of the Lost Colony. But Ambrose makes it richer by telling the true stories of some of the colonists like George Howe, who was walking along the shore looking for crabs to cook when he was attacked by a tribe of Native Americans and shot 16 times with arrows before dying.”
“Numerous visitors to Roanoke Island report seeing a ghostly figure walking along the shore as if looking for something. Many have speculated it is George Howe, eternally searching for crabs. Others have seen many spirits huddled together and believe them to be the ghosts of 15 men who were left behind at one time to guard the new settlement but who were also killed by the Native Americans.

Ghosthunting North Carolina is also highlighted in my new article on FATE Magazine where I discuss the haunted battleship, the USS North Carolina in Wilmington, NC. In my research and concluding report, I share… “In my experience as a psychic and paranormal investigator, I have found that powerful emotional experiences of the most positive and the most negative nature leave an energy imprint on the object of the attention. Energy imprints are also left on objects surrounding the area as well. I believe that the USS North Carolina battleship soaked up all of that energy that day upon her arrival in Pearl Harbor. In the water and in the air, she felt the pain and loss of the destruction which had occurred, while at the same time, she was greeted and filled with joy by sailors, pilots and marines who saw her as a saving grace and point of hope. This, I believe, buoyed the battleship, giving her great luck and fierce determination in battle.” Read the rest of the story online at FATE Magazine.
