Vidar Hokstad grew up near Oslo, Norway. He started writing at an early age, but put it aside to focus on technology - his other passion. He has co-founded a number of technology companies, and moved to London with one of them in 2000.
Ca. 2016 he started thinking about an expansive series of sci-fi novels that became "Galaxy Bound", but put aside for other commitments. In 2020 he picked it up again, and wrote and published the first Galaxy Bound novel.
Vidar lives in London with his son.
