Composed from true life events and personal manuscripts, This Shadow Follows Me, is a riveting fiction novel of Alec Andrews and the friends and family that faltered around him.

The story begins with Alec Andrews at the deathbed of his ex boyfriend Troy. . Alec tries to tell his life story in hopes that he can make up for all that he could not tell Troy when he was alive.
Alec's life story lurks with the self destruction of a family that drove him to crucify himself, in hopes they would be correct with their religious beliefs. From a homophobic family to a homophobic upbringing, Alec fights to find himself free from the illusions that capture him.

Alec is ultimately haunted by a dream where he took his own life.
In the dream he killed himself, only to be told he would have to live his life over again without making the same mistakes, but not able to remember the previous mistakes to stop them from coming true.
Will Alec and the ones around him find their way to claw out of the pain of the lives they create? Find out in this fictional and painfully honest memory of This Shadow Follows Me.

This novel is highly recommend for those that have ever dealt with homophobia in their family or for those that have gay children. A remarkable story that outlines the challenges many face with HIV and homophobia.
