Andrew J. Peters likes retold stories with a subversive twist, particularly when that twist turns heteronormativity on its head. His début novel The Seventh Pleiade (upcoming from Bold Strokes Books) is about a gay teen who becomes a hero during the last days of Atlantis. His paranormal fantasy Werecat: The Rearing is upcoming from Vagabondage Press. A 2011 Lambda Literary Foundation Fellow, Andrew has written short fiction for many publications. He lives in New York City with his partner Genaro and their cat Chloë.
