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."
Sammy and the San Juan Express
When the President of the United States calls, you answer, especially if you are the guest of honor at a summit of the twenty most powerful leaders in the world.
Fifteen-year-old Sammy dreams of a three-day vacation relaxing in Glacier National Park. "I'll be treated like a queen," she thinks. Instead she is whisked off on a hike where she meets a handsome young brown eyed man, and a frighteningly funny flatulent grizzly bear.
Little does she know, there are more than animals and handsome young men in the woods-there is also a band of terrorists bent on disrupting the conference and, as their leader says, "Cutting off the head of the dragon."
To save the conference and the President, Sammy must choose between right and wrong, head and heart, activism or terrorism, hate or love, and engage in a fight for her life.
