About Todd E. Creason

Todd E. Creason, 33°
Welcome!  This was the original home of the Midnight Freemason--back when it was singular.  I'm the Midnight Freemason!  That's me!  It's true!  I'm the guy who was up every night well past midnight, researching and writing books and articles and blog posts--hence the moniker "The Midnight Freemason."   

My original blog grew in popularity and I had a difficult time keeping up with it.  It became a full time job.  So several years ago, I invited a few friends to join me in providing content for it.  We moved the new incarnation of the blog to a new IP address.  It is now the internationally renown blog The Midnight Freemasons with tens of thousands of fans reading our work three times a week.  Over two million readers!  It's truly remarkable.  You can find out all about The Midnight Freemasons and all of our remarkable writers by following the link.  

But I'm still here where I've always been.  This is my personal blog.  I've been here since 2006 when I started researching and writing my first book Famous American Freemasons.  There have been five books since--another Famous American Freemasons volume, a collection of quotes from famous Freemasons entitled A Freemason Said That?, and three novels One Last Shot (2011), A Shot After Midnight (2013), and Shot To Hell (2014).  You can find all my books here.

In case you missed it, I'm a Freemason.  It's a big part of my life.  I belong to two small town lodges in rural Illinois.  I'm the current Master of one, and a Past Master of the other.  I won't give you the whole list, but I'll give you the highlights.  I'm in the Scottish Rite.  York Rite.  Shrine (not a very dedicated Shriner yet I'm sorry to say).  I'm a Past Sovereign Master of my council of the Allied Masonic Degrees, and I enjoy attending their meeting every year in Washington, D.C.  I'm also honored with the 33° by the Northern Judisdiction of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite for my contributions to Masonic writing.  I think one of the most surprising honors I've received was being made a Fellow in the Missouri Lodge of Research (FMLR)--one of only thirteen men that have ever received that distinction. 

I've done a lot of different things with this blog since the Midnight Freemasons moved out.  But it's still primarily on the topic of Freemasonry.  I write mostly trivial pieces on the topic of Freemasonry on this blog-- my more serious work, you'll find over on The Midnight Freemasons.  But in addition to Freemasonry, I enjoy sharing a few insights about life, and about happiness.  When you get to be fifty, you get thinking you know as much as you did when you were a teenager.  I also write about the things I'm doing, the things I've seen, and I do enjoy humor as you'll soon discover--that's always been a part of my work.  You'll also get the occasional strong opinion--sometimes those get a little raucousIt's a little more casual here. 

Almost look like I know what I'm doing.
So I'm glad you visited.  I hope you enjoy it.  Let me know if you do by leaving a comment.
