The Passion Behind Steve's Science Fiction Series
Steve R. Romano's fascination with science fiction started as a child after watching the premiere episode of Star Trek. In high school, he became a
bigger fan after being assigned to read many of the well-known classics in a science fiction English class.
Steve's interest in science fiction was further heightened when his sci-fi heroes--Gene Roddenberry, Theodore Sturgeon
and Ray Bradbury--spoke at his high school at one of the assemblies. Mr. Roddenberry showed the students a film of Star Trek bloopers, it being a treasure from Gene's
private collection, never shown before publicly.
After having several prophetic dreams of betrayal which later came true, Steve found an emotional outlet from the painful events by writing works of fiction. Steve's pastime entertaining guests at renaissance festivals as his witty, costumed character "Laktos the Intolerable"
inspired the characters he used in his first short story.
After his friends read several of his amusing stories, they encouraged him to take things a step further. He then
turned the series of tales into a short novel. After an editor critiqued it and gave him valuable pointers, he was ready to start the long journey ahead that lead to
Steve finding his passion, being a full-time author.
Fulfilling a Need for Quality Children's Books
Steve and his wife Heidi write and illustrate family-oriented children's books that are not only entertaining, but also teach
good values. For younger children, they are creating a picture-book series. For older kids, especially boys, they are writing
action-adventure stories. This was after a third-grade teacher who critiqued their very first book told them that there aren't
enough children's action-adventure books available, that being the type of book that the boys in her class enjoy reading the most.
Artwork is important to Steve and his wife Heidi. Together they filled their "The Adventures of Amerina" series with photos of live-action sets and characters that they create.
The elementary school test audience who enjoyed their first picture book made these comments: "I feel like I can step right into the picture!" "It looks like a movie!"
Steve and Heidi are currently fulfilling the children's requests for more stories.
