About me:Hello, I'm Shawn Decker.
I wrote a book about my life from birth until age 29. It's called My Pet Virus, The True Story of a Rebel Without a Cure. You can really find out about me with a trip to your local library! Here's what some folks have said about My Pet Virus...
Augusten Burroughs says: "Shawn is the King of the Thinblood Hotties! If I had Shawn's resilience and talent maybe I wouldn't be such a mess."
John Berendt says: "Shawn takes on a deadly topic with asonishing grace. Enlightening, compassionate, hilarious."
USA Today says: "Decker has a gift for blue-collar humor: crude and rude but big-hearted and unbiased."

.... I am HIV educator, and I travel with my partner, Gwenn, educating about sexual health and HIV. Check out our site www.shawnandgwenn.com.
Aside from that, I wrote about what I'm up to over at my Poz blog, so pop on over if you want to know more. You can also check out my music with Synthetic Division on MySpace or at synthetic-division.com.
