Hygge: Danish Cultural Influence

Hygge is the Danish culture of contentment, coziness and congeniality. Focusing on the simple things in life, like the ritual of storytelling. Bedtime stories with children are a great example of hygge. My father was born in Denmark.

An Author, An Illustrator, A Mother and Grandmother, and Marketer. As with most small entrepreneurial ventures, the principal wears many hats (or faces).

Author & Illustrator

As an author and illustrator one must wear many hats. My passion for writing and desire to make a positive difference in the lives of children show in my books. (Passport photo - no smiling allowed.)


Marketing Department

Bunnies know how to propagate!

There is no question about it. There would be no sense writing a book if we didn't intend to sell many copies. And, we also recognize every child needs more books than we can ever write. Bunnies know how to reproduce, so they seemed like a good choice to manage the marketing department.

Hygge Stories believes editing is important. Stephanie brings a fine eye for detail. Every book written by Kristi Nielsen is edited 4 times to ensure every detail is correct. Unfortunately, many children's books are not properly edited. We believe editing matters.

Some of these testimonials are from previous writing relationships.

I have found Kristi to be a person of integrity. She is very punctual, organized, accessible and caring toward the people who have had the good fortune of meeting her.

With the incredible momentum she demonstrates, Kristi will do quite well in any endeavor she puts her energies into. I welcome her imminent success and wish her well.

Coach - Trainer - Speaker

It is my pleasure to recommend speaker, trainer, author - Kristi.
For me Kristi embodies the characteristics of a wonderful teacher, coach and motivational speaker: she has strong interpersonal communication skills, is an accomplished public speaker, has published an inspirational book and has devoted countless hours, both paid and volunteer, to help other recognize and achieve their personal best. She walks her talk, I doubt there is anything to keep Kristi from achieving whatever goals she establishes in her work and her life.
