Ghosts and Legends of Genesee & Lapeer Counties Has Received its First Review!

"I think this book was excellently written and researched. You can tell a lot of time and heart went into this book. The amount of history and back story was perfect. Two really stuck out to me Sex, Lies and a Junkyard Murder, and The Brent Estate and Dorothy Schneider those two stories will not be forgotten. I loved the added photographs, in the book.

Spooky season is coming up, and this is the perfect book to pick up to get you into the spirit, plus learn some interesting history. I fully plan on picking up a physical copy of this book once it’s released on 8/29/2022. You should too! Five stars!!!"

The Authors of Haunted Flint are back with Ghosts and Legends of Genesee and Lapeer Counties

The authors of the Amazon #1 Bestseller Haunted Flint are back with a new book featuring local historical haunted hot spots and urban legends.

Ghosts and Legends of Genesee and Lapeer Counties will be released Monday, August 29, 2022.




In this book history, true crime, and the paranormal intersect

Spooky stories and terrifying tales lurk in dark rural corners and on historic main streets throughout Genesee and Lapeer counties. Hospitals, cemeteries, and historic homes have numerous ghosts attached to them.

Roxanne and Joe dig into the archives in search of secrets buried in history. They uncover dark truths that have led to haunting tales. They often discover stories where history, true crime, and the paranormal intersect. These sinister tales of murder have led to locations full of paranormal activity.

A Clio man’s spirit is thought to still reside in the junkyard office where he was murdered. The incident was billed as the internet’s first murder case and made nationwide headlines as the Instant Message Murder.  

For almost two centuries the Flushing area has been fascinated by tales of the wealthy Brent family whose land is connected to numerous tales of murder, mystery, and ghosts. The land may also have ties to the brutal 1928 murder of 5-year-old Dorothy Schneider.

The Lapeer State Home has ties to unethical medical practices, eugenics, and murder. The land and remaining buildings that once belonged to the home are considered to be extremely haunted.

The counties have numerous urban legends including the Michigan Dogman, black panthers, creepy clowns, crybaby bridge, and Blood Road.
