Award winning author signs children's books

Posted:

Kids book author Michael Dahl shares and signs his magic mystery story just in time for the spookiest season of the year.

Hocus Pocus Hotel is a fast paced adventure sharing how a school bully and a school brain work together, solving the mysteries of a magic hotel.

Dahl was inspired to author the book by his childhood.  He was always fascinated with magicians, even working as a magician's assistant as a teen.

Friends of mine used to live in a very spooky hotel in Minneapolis.  It was something out of Stephen King.  And I always thought that would make a great location for a story.  So I've always just kept that in the back of my head.  I figure, a lot of people spend time in hotels, and hotels can be scary," said Dahl.

Dahl says he'd like to stretch the book out into a series of maybe three or four more books.
