They are smart kids that solve mysteries and crimes, and are third graders who live close to one another. The kids live in Green Lawn, Connecticut, a tiny town. The kids have pets, parents, and hobbies, however they love a good mystery more than anything else in the entire world.

After writing “The Absent Author”, he just knew he wanted to pen more stories about Josh, Ruth Rose, and Dink.
