First of All
When I started writing, I promised myself that I would have
Native Americans in each of my stories. Some may ask why, and this is my
answer: I live in the French province of Quebec in Canada where many older
people sharing the bloodline of Native Americans suffered shame from other
Me, I am proud and taught my grandpa, who raised me, to be proud of his blood and magnificent rich ancestry. My grandfather was Native American, part of the Mohawk people to be more précised.

Gothic Bite Magazine always welcomes amazing authors & poets on their website! This week, we have the pleasure to interview, Michelle Gallagher!
Who is Michelle Gallagher?
I am a poet and mom of three from Sacramento, California. I love science, especially astrophysics and I often bring that scientific language into my poetry. I like the juxtaposition of visceral imagery and emotion.
I own the most Nine Inch Nails band T-shirts on the western seaboard. I play WoW, For the Horde! and Netflix is my boyfriend. I studied Psychology, Thanatology and Astronomy and I think it reflects in my writing.
Along with all my other quirks and unique aspirations I am working towards a doctorate in American History. The real history of America is not something read in textbooks and vampires are a part of it.
Often it’s hidden from sight. The victors write history; the ugliness washed away. I found this tidbit of history and I thought my vampire fans out there might enjoy.
In the early years of American history, New England was full of superstitions about the supernatural. The church spread fears of evil which lead to the witch trials so famously diluted in our history books. Vampires were rumored to roam New England’ rural communities by night with reports documented as early as 1793.
The Bell Witch or Bell Witch Haunting is a legend from Southern American folklore, centered on the 19th-century Bell family of northwest Robertson County, Tennessee. — Wikipedia
Who or What is it?
There’s much controversy about the Bell Witch Cave. Some say she is the daughter of an abusive father. Some say she is an outside entity that came to torment the Bell Family. There are even other reports that the Bell Witch was a male slave killed by Bell in the past.
The most common telling of it is that the Bell Witch was a neighbor girl whose name was Kate Batts. Often reports show the girl to quarrel with John Bell’s daughter Betsy who’s engagement was to Joshua Gardner—later broke up in 1821.
While all over the world, most likely in Nordic places. We are all aware of the legend of Bigfoot otherwise known depending on the location: Sasquatch, Yeti or Abominable Snowman. Otherly put, the existence of a tribe of giant furry animal-like bipeds. Continue reading Is the Swamp Monster Bigfoot?
The legend of the Swamp Monster is not as old as one would expect. When doing research on the monster itself, thinking mostly to be as old as Bigfoot, to my surprise the very first sighting of the half humanoid half leafy murky wet abominable monster took place in 1963 when a man and his friend were looking down from a plane on a swamp and discovered more than they anticipated.
