Andrew J. Peters likes retold stories with a subversive twist, particularly when that twist turns heteronormativity on its head. The Seventh Pleiade, the story of a gay teen who becomes a hero during the last days of Atlantis, is his first novel. A 2011 Lambda Literary Foundation Fellow, Andrew has written short fiction for numerous publications. He lives in New York City with his partner and their cat, Chloë.
