ABOUT ANDREW

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's debut memoir, Wolf Act (forthcoming from University of Wisconsin Press, 2025), is a collection of closely linked personal essays that investigate his childhood growing up queer in the Mormon religion and the impact it had on his self-worth and relationships into adulthood. In stories told through lyric, fabulist, and fragmented forms, he weaves together wolfish fairy tales and mythology, Mormon theology and practice, piercings and tattoos, clothing and nakedness, cave explorations, ghost stories, and more—all in an effort to understand and reclaim his life as one worth saving.

Andrew currently lives in Columbus, Ohio, and is a Presidential Fellow at The Ohio State University. He has earned various awards for his writing and photography, and his work has been featured in journals such as Black Warrior ReviewBrevity, New Delta 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.

​When not writing, Andrew enjoys dying his hair, hiking, reading, watching movies and playing video games, taking long walks in storms or long talks over coffee, and spending time with his partner, Terrence, and their feline companion, Sokka the Wildercat.
