Roe Horvat

Queer fiction author Roe Horvat was born in former Czechoslovakia and endured a miserable adolescence in the post-communist wasteland. Equipped with a dark sense of sarcasm, he traveled Europe and finally settled in Sweden where the weather is nasty but the freedom great.

He came out as transgender in 2017 and has been fabulous since. He loves Jane Austen, Douglas Adams, bad action movies, stand-up comedy, pale ale, and daiquiri, with equal passion. Roe writes contemporary romantic fiction – it conveniently balances out his real-life pragmatism.

When not hiding in the studio doing graphics, he can be found trolling cafés in Gothenburg, writing, and people-watching.
