Author Biography
Moore, Perry (Author)
William Perry Moore IV was born in Richmond, Virginia on November 4, 1971. He graduated from the University of Virginia in 1994. While in college, he interned at the Virginia Film Festival. After graduation, he worked as an intern for MGM, on the production team for The Rosie O'Donnell Show, and eventually as an executive with the movie company Walden Media. He was an executive producer of the fantasy movie series The Chronicles of Narnia. He wrote The Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion. He also wrote and directed with his life partner Hunter Hill the movie Lake City starring Sissy Spacek.

Although he was glad that comic books had been introducing gay superheroes for some time, he wanted to see them portrayed in a better light. In 2007, he wrote Hero, a book about a gay superhero, which won a Lambda Literary Award as the best novel for young gay and lesbian adults in 2008. He died on February 17, 2011 at the age of 39.
