Gregory Gerard's work has been published by Tiny Lights, The Stone Table Review, and World Voice. He teaches writing part-time at Writers & Books, Rochester’s adult literary center, and has been a guest instructor at the University of Rochester's Scholars Creative Writing Program.
His memoir, In Jupiter's Shadow, 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 truth from the most important person in our lives: ourselves.
Gerard lives in Rochester, New York, with his partner of eleven years and their spitz husky.
Hiding from others is easy.
Hiding from yourself is trickier.
Growing up in Western New York in the late ’70s/early ’80s, Greg is a teenage “detective" searching for self-truth. He confronts Heaven and Hell as he struggles -- within a family full of secrets -- to solve the profound mystery he encounters in the bathtub on the second floor.
