Vognox the Viking and the Island of Skeletons

by Nick Falk, illustrated by Tony Flowers

Nick Falk is a professional psychologist and amateur banana juggler who lives with his wife and two young sons in London. He first picked up a pen aged seven, and has been writing stories ever since.

Nick likes to eat cheese that smells as bad as his socks. He would also like to ride a rhinoceros into a supermarket, but is yet to find an appropriate rhinoceros.
