In Memory of Terry Boyle

Posted on July 21 by Kyle in News

Terry Boyle was an accomplished man. He was a Canadian author, lecturer, and teacher who shared his passion for history and folklore in many books since 1976, including four Haunted Ontario titles. He hosted television’s Creepy Canada and radio’s Discover Ontario on Classical 103.1 FM. Terry hosted the popular Entwood Tours, historic and haunted guided walks in Parry Sound and Bala, Ontario nearly every summer season. 

Truly an accomplished man, we were saddened to hear of his passing on Monday, July 11, 2016. He was 63 years old.

My interest in the paranormal began in 1975, when I was researching historical sketches of places on the Waccamaw Neck of South Carolina, United States. I became acquainted with a home called the Hermitage.

The Hermitage at the time, was a good example of an appealing combination of the historic and the mysterious. It is still a house with a benign ghost.

Dr. Allard Belin Flagg built the Hermitage in 1849, on a point of land surrounded on three sides by tidal marshes, in Murrells Inlet, S.C.

Today's blog post is from Laura, our Assistant Editor here at Dundurn.

 

Here at Dundurn we nurture a healthy interest in Canadian history and the paranormal (an eclectic mix, to be sure!) For those of you fortunate enough to live in Canada, many of the settings featured in books published by Dundurn authors can be visited and explored. I had just such an opportunity during a recent trip to our nation’s capital, when I attended an event at the Ottawa Jail Hostel.
