From making documentaries for PBS, to producing and reporting for network news outlets such as NBC, ABC, and CBS, Alison Kartevold`s career as an Emmy award-winning journalist has taken her across two decades and five countries.

Fueled by the imaginations of her two young daughters, KenKarta: Battle of the Onoxmon is brimming with characters and events the trio dreamt up together.

Collectively, mother and daughters have created a spectacular fantasy world wherein tweens and teens will revel. Alison and her family live in the Pittsburgh area; find out more about her and the book at:

In KenKarta, all are expected to develop their Gifts, especially if they`re a young Princess. Veronica and Sophia will grow to be incredibly Gifted - if they just live long enough. Get ready, the Battle of the Onoxmon draws dangerously near.

In this middle grade fantasy novel, created by Alison Kartevold in collaboration with her two young daughters, the story follows two princesses as their happy life is shattered when the ruthless Lord Leamoldae returns from banishment, seeking to wreak revenge and seize the power of the Onoxmon. Leamoldae traps the King and Queen and kidnaps Sophia, who must quickly master her burgeoning Gifts to survive, while Veronica joins forces with Zane the stable boy and a medley of mythical creatures to rescue her. KenKarta: Battle of the Onoxmon is a fantastic adventure brimming with timeless appeal for fantasy lovers of all ages.
