Sev Romero


Sev Romero is a writer based on Ngunnawal Country (Canberra, Australia). Sev enjoys writing dark speculative fiction novels and short stories that hold a mirror up to today’s world. These tales feature gripping plots, authentic characters, and a healthy dose of social commentary and dark humour.

Sev grew up in the outer suburbs of Canberra, crammed with his 5 siblings in a 3 bedroom government house. With little money, a trip away consisted of renting a b-grade film or borrowing a book from the school library. Thankfully this upbringing empowered Sev to travel beyond the suburban realm through his love of reading and writing.

In particular, dark uncompromising science fiction, fantasy, and horror. From the written works of Orwell to King, to films like Mad Max, Akira and Evil Dead.

Sev’s inspirations today include James S. A. Corey, N. K. Jemisin, Cormac McCarthy, and Margaret Atwood.

Sev is also a strong advocate for equality and the environment, and these themes often feature in his work.

When not writing, Sev enjoys spending time with his 3 children, cheering on his football team, listening to music, and unwinding with a video game.
