Introducing Author Vikki Romano

Vikki Romano is an author of sci-fi romance. Having recently discovered her, I put together a post so we could all learn more about her work. The more SFR authors we know about, the more reading choices we have amirite?!

What she writes

Sci-fi thrillers with romance. Especially good for fans of cyberpunk, military SF, suspense and films like WARGAMES and TRON.

Books of interest

Vikki Romano’s Alpha Core Trilogy launched with EDGE OF DARKNESS (2015), continues with BREAKING POINT (2016), and culminates in SYNAPSE CONTINUUM, which released this month. So she’s been busy writing SFR for a while!

Here’s the blurb for EDGE OF DARKNESS:

In 2065, corporate sponsored governments jockey for supremacy in the biotechnical arena. Bullets and missiles take a back seat to cyber-enhanced soldiers and pulse weapons. In this extreme environment, only the most hardened body and mind can survive. Calder McKenna was a failed experiment in the military’s push for power. Now a special agent for the metro task force, he lives day by day trying to forget the ones that were lost… the ones that he could have saved. When technology and humanity collide, Calder is forced to make desperate decisions, but how do you destroy the monster without becoming one yourself?

About Vikki Romano

(from the author’s bio page)

I know it sounds cliché, but I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, in every capacity that I can manage. From newsletters to yearbooks, journals to hard cover books. It’s not seeing my name on a cover or any kind of admiration that does it to me, it’s getting it out. It’s a strange phenomenon that most writers have, of having stories continually running through your mind and the nearly painful urge to get them all out before you forget them. Not sure what the phenomenon is called, but there are days I hate that I have it. It’s a blessing and a curse. A double edged sword.

My love for sci-fi goes way back to my childhood. I mean, who didn’t love movies like Tron and Terminator when they were a kid? Or great oldies like WarGames. I grew up in the advent of technology and rode the wave of the dot com lifestyle in my 20s. It was a wonderful time to be alive, to see where tech could go. Being involved in the field as a database admin and then later as a hardware tech and web designer, I had my fingers in all of it and I loved what it was all about.

In college, I was a true cyberpunk and gloried over works by Gibson and Dick. I reveled in the hackers manifesto like a warrior and actually prayed for a world like BladeRunner. They were very cool, hyper-energized times we were in and it gave me scores of ideas and hands-on experience to dump into my work.

Now I am putting my thoughts to paper… or to screen, as it were. Dumping my neurons onto the page, letting out the stories that have been hovering there for so many years. My Alpha Core series is just the first of many. I hope you will enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed writing them!

One thought on “Introducing Author Vikki Romano”

  1. Thank you for the awesome intro! So happy to finally find a place where I fit in. My stories are definitely SciFi, and they definitely have romance in them, but I wasn’t aware that there was an actual SciFi Romance genre. So happy there is now! If anyone has questions about my series, other books I’m working on, questions about tech, anything… I’m an open book.
