Kansas City, MO
A T Weaver is a divorced great-grandmother living right smack dab in the middle of the United States. She is a retired accountant and started writing at the age of 60 when she met about 3000 gay men and learned of the inequalities against the LGBT community.
Her first novel, Acceptance: One Man's Quest, was written at the urging of one of those men who said he wanted to read a story where 'the boy gets the boy and they ride off into the sunset together'.
This was before the advent of the gay erotic craze. Even before Brokeback Mountain.
She decided her pen name from her SCA name and occupation: Alisaundre who is a weaver and spinner living in Scottland in the 14th century.
