07.28.11 | Wisconsin in Words: Mike Norman

In 1980, UW-River Falls journalism professor Mike Norman and a fellow writer wanted to write a non-fiction book, but didn't have a subject. Norman got an idea: Let's research and report Wisconsin ghost, haunted and other paranormal stories. To Norman's surprise, Haunted Wisconsin -- with a third edition due out this fall -- became so popular a publisher asked for more books. Books focusing on similar stories throughout the Midwest, and one specifically on Minnesota, followed. In a Wisconsin in Words interview on July 28 in his River Falls home, the retired journalism professor talked about his surprise at the popularity of the books, one of which was reprinted in Japanese. He also talked about the one incident in his own life that most personally unnerved him. But Norman also said, although it's been fun, he's done writing those books.
