Brian Mason is a poet, dreamer and a silly heart who enjoys nothing more than hearing and telling a good story. He is fascinated by tales of ghosts, monsters and average people alike. He grew up in Port Sanilac, Michigan and experienced a childhood unlike any other, filled with characters who moulded him into the person he is today. He has been raised and surrounded by like minded individuals from day one and, through his life, he has sought out people and places that would inspire his life and work. As children he and his community never said anything was impossible. "When I feel confused about life's direction or question my existence and purpose, I just travel home to find myself again. That is where my story begins and ends really. Port Sanilac and her people holds all my secrets of what makes me tick." he often says.
Brian currently resides in Marshall, Michigan with his sweetheart and wife, Courtney, and their children, both human and fury. He spends his time with family and friends and when he isn't working he is usually outside in his garden or can be found in town somewhere likely chatting over a cup of coffee.

the author, Brian Mason, over his seven years of gathering paranormal tales, legends and folklore from one of America's most haunted towns.

Marshall, MI is a hotspot for history enthusiasts, ghost hunters, mediums and curious travelers who enjoy its quiet, almost eerily secretive charm. It is one of the most well kept hauntings of Michigan until now.
Most famously known for its almost win for State Capitol, the city boasts a host of triumphs and failures, including the loss of its position as a busy railroad town and the discontinuation of Patent Medicine by the FDA of which Marshall was all but the center off for the midwest. Through it all, the haunted part of Marshall has awaited its time, silently cultivating legends and lore that has seeped deep into its history and late into its nights.
From bodies buried in yards and a little girl haunted by a ghost with the same name to blood money that created one of the most treasured homes in town. From a hilltop residence that possesses the trapped souls from a families days of dabbling in the occult, to a chef who cannot bare to leave his most famous restaurant. Through this book, Marshall stands to gain her place in the realm of the most haunted places not only Michigan but America as well.
