Tom Jemielity is Professor Emeritus at the University of Notre Dame, having taught there and earlier at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada, and at John Carroll University. He retired in 2003 after more than four decades of teaching and research, with a strong emphasis on comedy and satire in both. Most of his more than twenty scholarly publications deal with satire, including the book-length study Satire and the Hebrew Prophets.
Since retirement, he has published several comic short stories and essays in Cynic On-Line Magazine, Foliate Oak Literary Magazine, The Macguffin, New York Observer, and Rosebud. With his wife, Barbara, he lives in South Bend, Indiana (reluctantly). They have three adult children and two grandkids. Snapshots are available on request.
Love Bade Me Welcome
In 1966, devout Catholic Todd Milonik meets Matt Rideaux, who is trying to reconcile his sexual orientation with his faith. They become close friends and, eventually, lovers. Is their love strong enough to weather all that stands against them? Or will the bigotry of others drive them apart?
A Queer Pattern of Murder
Good cop, bad cop? No. It’s straight cop, gay cop, as the detective team of Billy Mack and Ethan Gregory seek the vicious killer of a middle-aged gay man.
