Norhalla, Inc. is owned and operated by the Valkenhaus family and is organized for the preservation and education about Nordic lore, Norse and Viking culture, mythology, belief, and history through art and literature.
Being a Danish-American family, we set out to write the stories of our Nordic and Viking ancestors and bring them into modern times. We chose to write the stories for children so they can learn about our history and lore in fun, engaging stories.
Our passion came into reality with the first Norse, of Course! illustrated children's book published in January 2014, The Roots of Yggdrasil. We have since published many books in several different series along with various ongoing projects.
Norhalla, Inc. is a family business and each member has an element in everything we make, write, illustrate, animate, and sell here at Norhalla!
Our books are available online on our website as well as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books a Million among others. We have a dealer network with small businesses, Scandinavian specialty shops, and independent bookstores throughout the United States. We also sponsor select events and festivals throughout each year with various donations.
