Ghosts of New Bern©2010 Joseph and Joyce O’Callahan

New Bern, NC – Joseph and Joyce O’Callahan of Ghosts of New Bern™, the very popular walking tour of the Downtown Historic District, announce the publication of their book, Ghosts of New Bern. From a story about loud hauntings in one of New Bern’s finest homes, to a chilling paranormal experience described by a university professor, to the famous New Bern legend about the sisters in the attic, Joe and Joyce have captured these and many other stories in Ghosts of New Bern. You’ll read about many of the tales that they tell on their entertaining and thrilling tour, now in its fourth year of operation.

Joe and Joyce explain that the stories in Ghosts of New Bern come from three primary sources. “We have researched what has been written about the paranormal in New Bern and you will read some of those stories. You’ll also read credible stories that have been told to us by individuals who have experienced what they believe to be genuine paranormal events – sometimes even on our tour. Finally, you’ll read about what we call “New Bern Legends,” those stories that are a part of life for New Bernians.”

Joe and Joyce live in New Bern and have a genuine affection for North Carolina, New Bern, history and ghost stories. Joyce was born in New Bern and grew up in the Florence Community of Pamlico County. The daughter of Earl and Erma Williams, she attended Pamlico County High School and is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Joe was born in New Orleans. He is a graduate of the University of New Orleans where he also received his Master’s Degree in 18th-century British literature.
