Michael Shepherd

Updated on November 14, 2014

Heres to everyone with my name !

I have been collecting Google Alerts--world wide web postings--for Michael Shepherd. Usually it is the same old Maine reporter but occasionally other interesting people come to the forefront.

Some of the results are listed below.

The documentary "Google Me The Movie" got some publicity so I thought I would include it here, but I do need a better graphic.

I did have a Robert Ludlum graphic because he originally published "The Road to Gandolfo" under the name Michael Shepherd. I actually stumbled on a copy in a book store with three separate covers, all with big letters saying written by Michael Shepherd. A real conversation starter in my book case.

This Michael Shepherd would welcome the help of any other Michael Shepherd to improve this hub. Please comment below or send me your links.

Just a few of the Michael Shepherds out there . . .

Featured Michael Shepherd

My latest discovery is New Zealand artist, Michael Shepherd. He is well recognized within new Zealand and is collected internationally. He was awarded the Order of Merit due to his services to the Arts in his home country. "Shepherd’s meticulously painted works, usually in an understated, subtle palette, explore and depict New Zealand’s history . . ." states nz-artists web site.

There are several Michael Shepherds on Facebook. It gets confusing when you list one as your friend.

Michael Shepherd's Facebook profile

I thought 6 was a big number on Facebook; I was shocked when LinkedIn's Directory listed 67 Michael or Mike Shepherds. Some of those may be duplicates, however. Take a Look Here

Poet Michael Shepherd

from Marton, Lancashire, England

" ! e n t h u s i a s m

I love the old Greek view -

within each of us

the god lies sleeping;

a sweet sleep, full of refreshment,

as snug as a bug in a rug

or Arthur, all his knights around,

under the green hills of Avalon; "

I especially identified with this first stansa.
