More About the Author

Terrance Zepke studied Journalism at the University of Tennessee and later received a Masters in Mass Communications from the University of South Carolina. She studied parapsychology at the renowned Rhine Research Center. Zepke spends much of her time happily traveling around the world but always returns home to the Carolinas where she lives part-time in both states. She has written hundreds of articles and close to three dozen books. Additionally, she has been featured on many programs and publications, such as NPR, CNN, The Washington Post, Travel with Rick Steves, Around the World, World Travel & Dining with Pierre Wolfe, Good Morning Show, The Learning Channel, and The Travel Channel.

When she's not investigating haunted places, trying to find pirate treasure, or climbing lighthouses, she is most likely packing for her next adventure to some far flung place, such as Iceland or Kwazulu Natal. Some of her favorite adventures include piranha fishing on the Amazon, shark cage diving in South Africa, hiking the Andes Mountains Inca Trail, and dog-sledding in the Arctic Circle.

She reveals that her favorite haunted place is the Stanley Hotel and the creepiest ghost investigation was spending the night inside the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum.

This has to be the most definitive information available about North Carolina's coast, including every island, town and community. It's incredible! Being a native North Carolinian I thought I knew a little something about coastal North Carolina, but when I opened Zepke's newly released book I was absolutely astounded by the depth and detail of her research. It has everything from history to fishing schedules, ghost tales to fun quizzes, interspersed throughout with fascinating tidbits of information.

As the author quips,"I did it for you", you'll surely smile, picturing her footprints left in every nook and cranny along the entire North Carolina coast. Close your eyes and you'll feel the wind on your face and the sand beneath your feet and marvel at the magic of this book.

I was born & raised in NC & grew up loving the coast, but have lived away for a number of years. This book took me "home again". It is well written & covers so many of the beautiful & interesting places on that diversified coast. The pictures as well as the descriptions make it real. After reading this delightful & informative book, I truly do want to go home again if only for a visit. It gives you a wonderful insight into the coast of the Old North State.

My parents are boaters, who are retiring to the coastal NC area. This is a great book for them and was a perfect gift, as they plan their move.

Interesting book, but it is not a guide to the Carolina Coast, as it states in its introduction.
