~ Biography ~


A pen and a passport have been the tools of the trade for Niki Sepsas for most of his life. He learned at an early age that he had a problem keeping the seat of his pants attached to the seat of a chair. Any chair. After college at West Point and the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Niki served in the army before embarking on a thirty-year travel career that has taken him to more than 160 countries and each of the world’s seven continents.

Niki began fueling his passion for adventure by signing on to work for oil drilling companies operating offshore rigs in the Arctic Ocean of Alaska, Southeast Asia, the North Sea, and the Middle East. Realizing that he was enjoying climbing the hills as much as he relished discovering what lay on the other side, Niki began working as a freelance tour guide and tour manager for travel groups visiting Europe, Africa, Central/ South America, Antarctica, Asia, and throughout North America. His myriad adventure programs now include Mount Kilimanjaro climbs, hot air balloon trips across the Serengeti, kayaking in Iceland, paddling canoes through the Amazonian rainforest, hiking the Peruvian Andes to the lost city of Machu Picchu, and other excursions to the world’s wild and scenic places.

As a freelance writer, Niki has documented this world of wonders that beckons to each of us. More than 900 of his travel adventures have been published in over fifty national, regional, and local magazines and newspapers. He is a contributing author to the Chicken Soup for the Soul series of books and has written more than a dozen coffee table books, several personal memoirs, and a novel.

Niki lives in Birmingham, Alabama and continues to work as a tour guide and freelance writer today. He also spends about six months to eight months each year as a destination speaker aboard cruise ships. When not writing or cruising, Niki can be found climbing, kayaking, dancing, or camping somewhere searching for the perfect sunset.
