Mindie Burgoyne has published three books – all focusing on historic small towns in Maryland.
Her most popular book, Haunted Eastern Shore, Ghostly Tales from East of the Chesapeake was published by The History Press in 2010 and is now in its fourth printing selling over 3000 copies. The book focuses on sites known to be haunted in the nine rural Maryland counties. There are 23 sites total. Mindie gives the historical background on each site, the tale about haunting or paranormal activity, and then tells what people say today. In October, Mindie also leads bus tours to many of the sites. For information on tours visit Mindie’s online calendar of appearances.
Easton: Then and Now focuses on the historic Town of Easton which was once the Eastern Capital of Maryland. Photo images of Easton in the nineteenth century with captioned details are printed adjacent to a current image of the site with details about how the site has or hasn’t changed over the decades.

Snow Hill: Images of America focuses on the small Town of Snow Hill in Worcester County, Maryland which was once a significant port town at the headwaters of the Pocomoke River.
