About the Author

Gregory Gerard's work has been published by Tiny Lights, Jonathan, Lake Affect, and more, and recognized by Rochester's Geva Theater and KRCB radio's Word by Word. He teaches writing part-time at Writers & Books, Rochester’s contemporary literary center, and has been a guest instructor at the University of Rochester's Scholars Creative Writing Program.

His memoir, In Jupiter's Shadow, (Infinity Publishing, 2009) chronicles a religious boy's struggle with forbidden attraction. It explores how we all receive messages about what we "should be" in life and how we sometimes work to hide the truth from a most important person in our lives: ourselves.

Most recently, he serves as editor of the narrative non-fiction journal,
The Big Brick Review.

Gerard resides in Rochester, New York, with
his husband of 17 years.
