Andrew Romriell grew up in Sandy, Utah as the youngest of five siblings. He lived in a world of books--books in every room of the house. From his bedroom to the living room to the bathroom, stories absorbed his universe. Whether those tales were based on this earth or another, he cherished his time exploring worlds crafted through language.
Andrew currently lives in Columbus, Ohio, pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing. He has earned various awards for his writing and photography, and his work has been featured in journals such as Brevity, New Delta Review, Great River Review, and South 85 Literary Journal, among others. He writes about queerness, religion, sex, body image, video games, HIV, dating apps, relationships, and mental health.
In addition to writing and photography, Andrew enjoys movies and musicals, dying his hair, hiking, reading, long walks in storms, long talks over coffee, and spending time with his partner, Terrence, and their feline companion, Sokka the Wildercat.
