Sebastian Hidalgo is a Italian-Venezuelan author born January 16th, 1995 in Venezuela, where he spent his childhood before moving to Italy in 2005.
He wrote his first book – an historical novel “Phree Massen – Enlightened” at 15 years of age and published it at 17 with an Italian publisher. His work debuted at the Turin Book Festival and was later presented live on Sky‘s TGcom24 in a popular science program called Time House.
After studying languages in High School and obtaining a certification in “Hostage Negotiation”, he went on to graduate in Political Science and International Relations at the University of Trento in 2017.
In December 2018 he published in second historical novel, “Jewish Eagle” – the novel is not available anymore and marks Sebastian’s last published book in Italian.
Although he managed to finish university and obtain his degree, he fell out of love with what he was studying halfway into his second year in Trento and embraced writing as the only thing he truly loved: at the time he neglected a whole semester in order to finish his third novel, a sci-fi space opera called “Kepler 452-B” that won a honorable mention in a national contest.
In 2019 he was in charge of the editing of two books from Italian poet Maddalena Vettori, and that same year he moved to the city of Frankfurt, Germany. Parting ways both with Italy and Italian as a language, he decided to focus on writing exclusively in English.
He is currently working on the foundational book of a fantasy saga.
He’s a martial artist obsessed with health, a Freemason, a proud supporter of emerging authors and a member of Twitter’s #WritingCommunity.
