About the Author
When not traveling, Nickolai Vasilieff can be found bent over his computer in a cabin, on the bank of the Necanicum River, in Northwest Oregon, USA. Nick is a Navy veteran, private pilot, businessman and writer, who has traveled to over forty countries, including a one-year, around the world trip, living out of a backpack. The San Juan Express stories are partly inspired by those trips, the children he met around the world, and summer vacations in the San Juan Islands with his two children. The stories he made up during those summer vacations eventually evolved into the Sammy and the San Juan Express series. “Young Adult novels are of particular interest to me, where the imagination of middle graders and young adults combined with an insatiable appetite for knowledge and adventure, and where confidence is fragile yet boundless. Creating challenges through which characters grow in mind and spirit is a constant objective, along with spinning a good tale, of course.”
