Nikolaj Vigrim

Biography

Nikolaj lives in Auckland, New Zealand with his long suffering partner, their four children and a cat that thinks she's a tiger. His work as a yacht captain takes him away for long periods to far flung corners of the globe. It's a full on job but when possible Nikolaj escapes into a fantasy world of teleporting clouds and flying cats to write stories for his children. He used to write these out long-hand but more recently has been tapping them out on an i-pad and publishing them online. While his children are rapidly growing up, the younger two are firm fans and always demand a bedtime story when Dad is home.
