Until 1909 he wrote together with his older brother Joseph Henri Honoré Boex under the pen name J.-H. Rosny. After they ended their collaboration Joseph Boex continued to write under the name J.-H. Rosny aîné (Rosny Senior) while Séraphin used "Rosny jeune" (Rosny Junior).

In 1903, Séraphin Boex was named to the first jury of the Prix Goncourt along with his brother.
