Anthony Vicino writes Science Fiction and Fantasy in Oakland, CA where it never rains, unless he has to ride his bike someplace.

When he isn’t sitting in front of a computer screen contemplating the thousand different ways to escape an asylum with nothing but a fork, a shoelace, some chutzpah, and a lot of snark, he is no doubt out climbing a rock in the Sierra Mountains. If not there, you may find him in the ocean pretending to surf.

Anthony’s debut novel, Time Heist, was released Fall of 2014. To keep up with his latest ramblings, check out his blog at OneLazyRobotBlog.com.

– Starting Out –

I tell stories. It’s a compulsion. Sometime during my awkward High School years my Dad (probably having grown tired and frightened of the wild hand gesticulations I use to tell stories orally) got me Stephen King’s On Writing, and started paying me ten cents per word for any short stories I’d write and sign over to him. He had his eye on the long con. A small investment with the hopes that I’ll actually amount to something someday.

Those stories will never be worth the paper their printed on cause at the time I was thinking, “Hells yeah, paid by the word? Adverbs are my friend!” My stories back then lacked any semblance of a plot, unless you count the one where I blatantly ripped off, without knowing it, Stephen King’s Misery.



Okay, so any writer worth their stripes knows that adverbs, like herpes, are for the most part a bad thing. Took me nearly a decade to learn that lesson. Took me a long time to learn a bunch of lessons, but here we are.

I write Science Fiction, Fantasy, Mystery, Thriller, Romance… you name it, I’ll write it. Because genre is really just a vehicle, isn’t it? At the root of it all, stories are about people and their motivations. Exploring that, getting into the head of a complete stranger for 300 pages, is what reading is all about for me.

But it has to be fun! If it’s not fun, I want nothing to do with it. So I throw a healthy dose of lasers, aliens, bombs, and broken hearts into the mix, cause I’m cruel like that.

If you like tough love then I think we’re gonna get along just fine.
