Nickolai is an elf, sole survivor of the wicked Magda's onslaught on the magical elf kingdom. Nick carries with him the only remaining Light Fairy in the world, his constant companion Elvina.Brought up by a human couple in the distant north, Nickolai knows that there is something different about him. Little does he realise that he was not born to humans, but rescued from the evil Magda by flying reindeer. And Magda continues to construct her evil empire, the city of Doransk. But when she starts to steal children's youth in order to regain her own beauty, Nick and Elvina must travel north, with the help of their friends, to foil her plans ... And so at the end of the book, Nickolai makes a pledge to return once every year at the time of winter solstice, to give presents to the world.

Lucy started writing as soon as she could hold a pen and has never stopped. She wrote her first play at eight: a nativity play told from the point of view of the donkey, which was performed for many years at her nursery school. After university she worked in advertising, journalism and TV. She had the idea for Nickolai of the North whilst talking to her daughter about who filled Santa's stocking when he was little. She wrote much of the book in midsummer, sitting in her garden, conjuring up the snow and ice of winter.
