Cooking Up a New Type of Mystery Novel: Combining Geezer-lit and Paranormal Mysteries

For you chefs out there, do you enjoy cooking up  new recipes? In the world of writing I like trying different flavors. My main course has been geezer-lit mysteries with the five books in my Paul Jacobson Geezer-lit Mystery Series.

Then I tried a zesty side dish of paranormal mystery with The V V Agency.

Now I'd like to offer up for desert, a paranormal geezer-lit mystery titled, The Back Wing. Widower Harold McCaffrey moves into Mountain Splendor Retirement Home with a group of strange residents -- witches, vampires, werewolves and shape-shifters. He bonds with his fellow denizens, especially the beautiful Bella. Things are looking up for Harold -- until he and Bella must use all their normal and extra-normal skills to solve two murders in this very unique retirement community.
As Edgar Award winner Rex Burns days, "Where else could one enjoy the image of being gummed on the neck by a toothless vampire with dementia?"
