Meet Author Nicki Elson

Thank you, Apryl, for inviting me to Romance Blogfest 2015! I hope you’re all having fun meeting new authors and partying with longtime favorites.

Today I’m featuring my new release, VIBRIZZIO. Now that the Vibster has made its way out into the world, I’d like to tell you where it all began… 

Since this is the story of a girl who gives up on real men in favor of battery-operated devices, I’m sure Sex and the City fans won’t be terribly surprised to learn that Vibrizzio’s first spark goes back to Charlotte and the Rabbit.  Charlotte’s obsession with her device-of-choice only lasted an episode, but I became curious to see what would happen if someone’s devotion to electronics lasted a bit longer.

Cities changed from New York to Chicago and a whole new story flamed around that first spark. It took on a sort of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty vibe when I decided it would be fun to dip into our
girl’s battery-induced fantasies. While the story idea continued to bounce around in my head, I met Hayden, and the love story emerged. That’s when I knew it was time to put it all into words. Just look at the trouble caused by a wascally wabbit:

Hope you enjoyed the man candy! (You're welcome.)

Writing fiction wasn't something I set out to do, it just sort of happened when I realized writing reports was by far my
favorite part of my investment consulting position. I traded stock allocation and diversification for story arcs and dialogue and now weave my creative writing time in with the other activities of my busy life with my family in the Chicago suburbs.

I write with two goals in mind: #1 to keep the characters realistic, even when their circumstances are anything but, and #2 to make the reader feel. In addition to Vibrizzio, my published works include Three Daves, a light-hearted romantic romp through a 1980s college campus, Divine Temptation, a romantic novel of angelic proportions, and Hans & Greta, a twisted fairy tale novella. Come play with me around the interwebs:
