About the Author

"There is no way to escape the the ghost tales and legends of the Outer Banks"

- Joe Sledge

Growing up on the Outer Banks of North Carolina meant that I lived on the literal edge of our world. The barrier islands were a very stark crossroads between land and sea. The rest of North Carolina was a blur to me, only seen out the window of a car as we drove inland to visit family. My world ended at the water’s edge. It’s no surprise I stared off and wondered what was beyond the horizon.
