Victoria Halley isn't my real name. She's my cooler alter ego who writes science fiction books without any aliens or time travel. When I'm out grocery shopping and taking out the trash, I'm just plain old Cristina Hartmann.
I began a lifelong love affair with science fiction at the tender age of 7. I watched Star Trek: the Next Generation and Star Wars over and over again until I memorized every line. (What a nerd I was!) Despite the aliens and intergalactic space travel, I began to understand that the stories were really about human nature. Ever since that moment, I dreamed of writing science fiction stories. It was only in 2011 that I got serious, sat down at the computer and wrote a book. The Secret Value of Zero, my first novel, was the result.
When I'm not writing, I'm hanging out on the Internet. My stomping grounds include Quora, Twitter and occasionally Facebook. The Internet is a wonderful and dangerous place. I love it!
