Christopher Sequeira (also published as Chris G.C. Sequeira, Christopher G.C. Sequeira, C.G.C. Sequeira)is a Sydney-based Australian writer and artist who works predominantly in the speculative fiction realm, especially with the horror, science fiction and mystery genres. His published work includes poetry, prose (especially short fiction), film and tv scripts and comicbook scripts.
A keen Sherlock Holmes enthusiast, Sequeira is a longtime member of the Sherlockian Society "The Sydney Passengers", and has played both Holmes and Professor Moriarty in various dramatic re-enactments (including a filmed-for-Australian-national-TV segment wherein he portrayed Moriarty's plunge to his death in battle with Holmes at Reichenbach Falls - in this case Leura Falls outside Sydney served the purpose).
He has also self-published and published the works of others under the imprints of Opal Press Australia and Sequence Productions Pty Ltd.
Sequeira's association with cape-wearing pop-icons continued when his wedding ceremony was covered on national TV. This costume-party marriage featured Australia's first use of a celebrant in the persona of Elvis Presley (Sequeira himself was dressed as Count Dracula, wife Jacqui was the Countess Dracula, groomsmen were Batman villains Penguin, Two-Face and Riddler, and bridesmaids were styled as movie goddesses Marilyn Monroe, Vivien Leigh and Elizabeth Taylor). Sequeira and his future wife had persuaded Sydney civil wedding celebrant Russell Hansen to become Australia's first Elvis-styled celebrant, a role for which Hansen is now locally well-known.
Sequeira continues to write for various pop culture projects including the Boss Beat television project for brother Jonathan Sequeira, and for US-based comics publishers including Marvel Entertainment.
