Award winning author signs children's books


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.
