Storytellers Theresa Bane and Cynthia Moore Brown focus on ghost tales in the Piedmont region of NC in "Folktales and Ghost Stories of North Carolina's Piedmont."  Charlotte native Stephanie Burt Williams tells of haunted locations in Charlotte and its surrounding county in "Ghost Stories of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County."  Got kids?  Then you might want to peruse these stories in Terrance Zepke's aptly titled "Ghosts of the Carolinas for Kids."
