Alexus Sheppard is a retired dentist with an undergraduate degree in Secondary Education. She began her transition from male to female after surviving stage 3 Hodgkin’s Disease in 1998.
In 1996, prior to her transition, she began her online presence with a personal website, www.alexussheppard.com. This website became quite popular within the transgender community and quickly grew into a popular blog which documented both her pre-transition and post-transition life. That blog served as the inspiration and foundational material for this book.
She has been a guest lecturer, speaking on her transition and other LGBT issues, for numerous colleges and universities in both Colorado and California.
She now lives in Northern California with her wife Deborah.
