Intro


Following Shepard

 

Eirinn is chasing Seth across the country. He knows where Seth is going. He has no idea why.

 

Following Shepard is a novel about gay rights set in 1999. It tracks the story of a small group of gay college students in rural Ohio as they navigate all the difficulties that entails. It's extrapolated and dramatized from the author's real life college experience -- a "what if" that examines the reality that could have happened, if just a few things were different. It involves drama and betrayal, oppression and fury, and the many flavors and kindness and cruelty that existed in that odd pocket of time when Sean Hayes won an Emmy for Will and Grace, but coming out nearly killed Ellen's career.

You won't regret reading it, nor easily forget the ending, but you will enjoy the ride.
