About the Author
A. T. Weaver is the pen name of an elderly straight woman living in Kansas City, MO. I have four children, ten grandchildren, and one great-grandson. I live alone with Cleopatra, the cat. There are two questions I get asked most: Why gay novels, and where did you get the name A. T. Weaver. In 2003, I met almost 3,000 gay men via a television show and Yahoo group. They educated me regarding the problems gay people have regarding their rights. They also introduced me to gay movies and books. So many of the stories have such tragic endings, that I decided to write about gay men who love one another and how they are really no different from straight people. As to the name: About twenty-five years ago, I joined a group that recreates the Middle Ages. In that group, I am known as Alisaundre, a nickname of which is Alix. I do dying, spinning and weaving. When I set up my first email account, every combination of my legal name had been taken and I finally came up with alixtheweaver. I didn't want to embarass my children by using their surname on a gay novel. Thus A.(Alix) T.(The) Weaver.
