Maybe if I had Shawn’s talent and resilience I wouldn’t be such a mess.

Shawn Decker takes on a deadly topic with astonishing grace. Enlightening, compassionate, hilarious.

Never wallows in self-pity. My Pet Virus is a sweet reminder that, no matter how bad things get, there’s no reason to stop laughing.
Entertainment Weekly

Uninhibited laugh-out-loud humor… Decker has a real gift for blue-collar humor. Crude and rude but big-hearted and unbiased.
USA Today

Decker is a one-liner machine.
The San Francisco Chronicle

Stoked by the author’s boundless, good-natured charm, his story pops with an effervescent sense of humor that never falters.
