YA author talks new fantasy at Winslow shop

Edgar Award nominee Ben Guterson will be at Eagle Harbor Book Company at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 10 to discuss his new middle-grade reader offering, “The Secrets of Winterhouse.”

In this, the second in his enchanting urban fantasy middle-grade series set in a magical hotel, Elizabeth and Freddy dig deeper into the mystery surrounding Riley S. Granger, a hotel guest who left behind odd artifacts — one being a magical book that the evil Gracella Winters attempted to use the year before to gain destructive power over the entire Falls lineage.

The two friends follow a trail of clues, inadvertently attracting the attention of a suspicious new hotel guest: Elana Vesper. The clock is ticking as Elizabeth and Freddy struggle to figure out whether Elana is merely a pawn or a player in the plot to revive the spirit of Gracella.

And, if that wasn’t enough, Elizabeth suspects she is coming into her own magic ability — and she’s fearful it might lead her right into Gracella’s web.

Guterson is the author of “Winterhouse.” He was a high school and middle school teacher in New Mexico and Colorado for a decade before spending several years at Microsoft as a program manager.

He lives near Seattle in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains.
