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 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 West Virginia 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 from 2013 -2017.
In April of 2016, he released Blackbeard’s Lost Treasure using real places and events from the past. It went on to be named as a Semi-Finalist in the 2016 Clive Cussler Adventure Writer’s Competition.
His forthcoming novel, The Search for the Fountain of Youth, is due out in late Fall 2018. It is a sequel to Blackbeard’s Lost Treasure.
When not creating new adventures on the written page, Caleb owns a social media marketing and website development company in Concord, NC.
