Nell Saunders Graydon was born in Pineville, North Carolina, about ten miles south of Charlotte, where she lived for many years.  She married Sterling Graydon and moved to Greenwood, South Carolina.  She  lived in the upcountry, but spent many summers on Edisto Island and developed a love for the low country and for its land, its people and the unique way of life there.  When she was in her sixties, her active and energetic mind uncovered stories of the long ago and she began sending some of these tales to newspapers and magazines.  They were accepted for publication and a writer was born.  She wrote her first book on Edisto, the coastal island where she spent many summers.  Tales of Edisto was an immediate success, and then followed Another Jezebel, a novel about a Yankee spy in South Carolina.  Next she published Tales of Beaufort and then Tales of Columbia.  Other titles include, Eliza of Wappoo, South Carolina Ghosts Tales, South Carolina Gardens, and Nell Graydon's Cookbook, From My House to Your House.


by Nell S. Graydon 

Eerie and unusual stories of haunted houses and ghosts that have been around for centuries and which, some say, still roam!

The late Nell S.Graydon published numerous books and newspaper magazine articles. A native of North Carolina, she made her home in the South Carolina upcountry. She and her family spent their summers on Edisto Island, between Charleston and Beaufort.

While collecting and compiling these tales, Nell Graydon was asked if she believed in ghosts. "There are plenty of places mentioned in these tales where I would not want spend the night alone," she replied.
