SC Ghost Lore: Storytelling and Books by Tally Johnson

Do you believe in ghosts? Have you ever seen one? The purpose of this site is to remind you that ghosts are real and can be found everywhere. I am a storyteller and an author, not a psychic or an exorcist. I work at a library; I'm married; and, yes, I have living friends and family. I have over twenty-five years experience with ghosts and am widely read in the ghost lore of the Carolinas and the United States as a whole.

I am listed on the OSCAR roster of approved artists with the SC Arts Commission. I have been a contributor to the book Weird Carolinas, as well as having articles on regional ghost lore published in the Yorkville Enquirer and Chester News and Reporter newspapers. I am the author of three books of South Carolina ghost lore, GHOSTS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA UPCOUNTRY, GHOSTS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA MIDLANDS, and GHOSTS OF THE PEE DEE, all published by the History Press. The books cover every inland
South Carolina County and include a brief history of the county as well as the stories. Call 866-457-5971 for ordering information. I am also the author of Creek Walking, a collection of paranormal short fiction.


I am available to come to your school, library, or other civic organization and tell the tales that I have experienced. I prefer to work around my actual work schedule, so Mondays and Fridays are best. Weekends and nights need more notice due to family and other commitments. I also prefer to deal mainly with the Carolinas due to lower travel costs and greater relevance, but will travel anywhere. Prices are listed below.



Single Class Visits - $50.00 per hour (plus gas, depending on distance) and cafeteria lunch.


Multiple Class Assemblies / Summer Reading or Teen Read Week Programs - $200.00 per hour (plus gas, depending on distance) and cafeteria lunch.


Due to budget concerns, all rates are negotiable.
