About Caleb

1913805_1225957572860_3240933_nCaleb was born and raised in the small community of Mt. Lookout in West Virginia. He has since lived in Greenville, SC and currently resides in Concord, NC just outside of Charlotte.

Caleb Wygal’s writing career sprung from working for his uncle in a small office in Greenville, SC. During periods of downtime, his uncle told him to “look busy” when clients came in to the shop instead of reading books. His solution was to write short stories. He based these short stories around his days as a youth in Mt. Lookout, WV. He eventually tied this collection of stories together and and added a few new characters to create his first novel Moment of Impact in 2006.

Three years later, after moving to Concord, NC just outside of Charlotte, he released a sequel to his first novel, A Murder In Concord. 

After the promotional period for the sequel ran its course, he began a third novel, but set it aside after creating the website WVUPros.com. A site dedicated to following the Mountaineers who used to play for West Virginia in their pro careers. The site started as a hobby, but quickly took off. Caleb set the book writing aside to focus on building the new sports website. His articles appeared on nationally recognized websites such as ESPN.com and SI.com. He made appearances on ESPN Radio in Beckley, WV and on WVSports Radio, as well as contributing articles to the college football preview magazine The Signal Caller in 2013 and 2014.

In June of 2014, he had A Murder in Concord published on Amazon’s Kindle as he continues to work on two forthcoming novels and his first novel is in the works to become an E-book as well.

In the fall of 2013, he started writing an adventure novel about the search for Blackbeard’s Lost Treasure using real places and events. He completed that project in September of 2015. In February of 2016, he signed a contract to publish that novel with Black Rose Writing set for release on April 28, 2016.
