About the Authors

Nick Falk

Nick is a practicing psychologist who lives with his wife and two young sons in London. He first picked up a pen aged seven, and has been writing ever since. He likes to write books that are two parts funny, three parts exciting and one part educational, with a dollop of fantastical thrown in. He first started making up stories for his two young sons when they were living by the beach in Tasmania, and 17 published books later, he’s still going strong!

Nick has 4 series of books on the shelves, all for children aged 6 to 10. Saurus Street, which is about time travelling dinosaurs; Billy is a Dragon, which is about shape-shifting were-beasts; Samurai vs Ninja, which is about shuriken-filled battles; and the ‘How To’ series, which is about kids getting horribly lost in history. Nick has lived and worked in Australia, the US and Asia, and arrived back in the UK in 2015.

Praise for Samurai vs Ninja 2: The Race for the Shogun's Treasure

“Capitalising on the craze for things Japanese as manga-type stories permeate through to our youngest readers, this is an energetic, fast-moving series that will capture the imaginations of younger readers who are ready for independent reading but still need the support of short text and illustrations which are integral to that text.”

Barbara Braxton, OZTL_NET
