Spooky, the child featured in the series described as “a dead little boy continuing to grow up,” is modeled after the author’s own life experience. In addition to investigating and solving paranormal mysteries, the book series also deals with being an only child in a single-parent broken family. Revelations at the end of “The Terminal People” change the father and son relationship, setting an example of the trust a child can put in a parent no matter how bizarre events in their life may become. Future story lines will include urban exploring, making hard decisions about doing the right thing, and even dealing with bullies in school. The inclusion of a new best friend in the series also addresses helping others who have trouble helping themselves and coming from a different sort of broken home.
