About the Series: The Haunted Seniors of Specter County
Living next door to the local senior center, 10 year-old Henry thought he’d gotten used to the peculiarities and quirks of the retirees. Among the old timers is Sal; a disabled veteran with a talent for finding ingenious uses for ordinary objects, and Phyllis; a hoarder whose colossal handbag is filled with ordinary objects, plus a tiny dog with a knack for locating items within the giant bag.

But Henry is about to discover that the lives of the seniors are even odder than they seem. Ghosts linger among the living and the dead live on in photographs. Aided by supernatural forces, Henry and a group of elderly misfits must face danger and overcome the obstacles of advanced age as they struggle to right wrongs and bring justice to criminals.

A different, perhaps (in the best way) old fashioned, slow mystery. Some might say a cozy mystery, with a dash of supernatural.
Recent widow Betty is confused in her daily life, but also talks to her husband's ghost, making her seem even more batty. She also has dreams warning of trouble to come. When it occurs her friends prove invaluable, with a bit of help from the ghost and her friend's tiny dog.
