The remarkable child author McKenzie Wagner, from Utah, is releasing her fourth fantasy novel oriented toward young readers. This bright, vivacious 12-year-old, who has loved reading since the age of 4, began her personal career as an author at age 7, with “The Magic Meadow and the Golden Locket.”
McKenzie’s new tale, “The Stones of Horsh,” is the second in her fantasy trilogy “Benotripia,” set in a magical kingdom that faces hostile interactions with their enemies, the Darvonians. The first novel of the trilogy, “The Rescue,” saw the young princess of Benotripia, Roseabelle, and her two friends Astro and Jessicana, undertaking to rescue Roseabelle’s mother, the queen of Benotripia, from kidnappers. This second volume sees Roseabelle and her two friends facing new challenges to protect their kingdom. These books are full of excitement, courage, and magical adventure, and McKenzie’s writing ability is far beyond her years, as is her gift for story-telling.

Her goal is to receive a degree in English and become a teacher, in addition to continuing to produce engaging works of fiction.

She can offer your readers and you a very optimistic, energizing, and inspiring perspective on the joys of reading, learning, and being young.
