Meet the Author

A Minnesota native and longtime visitor to the North Shore, Kate Mayo now resides within view of Lake Superior. Frequent trips Up North finally gave over to permanent residence, and Kate has drawn on her previous perspective as a visitor to the area in the compilation of these narratives. She spent most of her career in the role of counselor and is a licensed therapist and addictions counselor, with an MA in counseling psychology.

Bill Mayo is a former Duluth resident and has lived in Two Harbors, Minnesota, for over two decades. Long a part of the poetry scene of the North Shore and a former Artist-in-Residence for Isle Royale National Park, he has published work in National Geographic's Traveler, Poets Who Haven't Moved to St. Paul and Zenith City Arts. He also holds an AAS degree in Human Services and is an enrolled member of the Leech Lake Pillage Band. His love of the North Shore came early while driving along old Highway 61 with his parents as a boy. Whether in a canoe, diving, or walking the beach, the eternal mystery of the Lake is always awe-inspiring for him.

    A reviewer

    This book is a quick and tantalizing read. The cool thing is, that unlike so many books in this genre, the authors clearly did their homework and the facts that they report appear to be reliable. In addition to this, the writing led me into a sense of awe at times, and I admit, I got chills more than once.

    Phenomenal Book!

    I just picked up a copy of this book at a local bookstore and it is phenomenal. The short stories are all based on true happenings, most of which I believe have never been in print before. I am very impressed with the way the authors presented the stories. Some of these tales are the most bizarre I have ever read, and yet they are full of emotion and depth. The north shore of Lake Superior is a fascinating area already, famous for its many mysteries, and the authors did a brilliant job of digging up the strangest, most obscure tales of all. Mayo and Barthel obviously did a lot of original research to present a book that brings the reader into worlds undiscovered. Among the captivating stories of UFO¿s, Bigfoot, shipwrecks, ghosts, and survival are tales with topics complex and unexplainable in ways that cannot be imagined. The characters they bring to life in these stories are both fascinating and sometimes almost frighteningly real. I was awestruck by The Starving Moon, which is a particularly haunting tale of a woman who survives an absolutely harrowing experience on the famed Isle Royale. The writing is smooth and poetic and due to the short length each story is easy to get through in a brief sitting. My husband and daughter are enjoying it as well, we even found ourselves reading the stories out loud to each other after dinner one night. If you are on the lookout for a book that explores the mysterious from a unique, profound perspective you can¿t miss this. With its original research and multifaceted focus, this book is one of a kind. I only wish the book were longer¿perhaps they¿ll put out another installment .
