Literary Sheparding

Wow. I can't believe it's been ten years since Matthew Shepard was killed. See more here. His death inspired some writing for me back in the day. I even allude to it in my last novel.

Peace to his spirit and his family. Bravo to Judy Shepard for doing remarkable work in hate crime legislation in memory of her son.

Hey! For some reason I had the urge to look up more information on Montgomery Clift tonight. While reading his bio on Wikipedia your book "Letters to Montgomery Clift" was listed in the pop culture section. I decided to research a bit more and I'm totally gonna pick up your book tomorrow. I loved Monty in From Here to Eternity.

Anyway...I just wanted to drop a note and say hello and let you know you have a new fan. :)

I know we say this about several events in this day and age, but it will always apply to Matthew Shepard, too: "We must never forget."
