Scott Pomfret '90 is the author of a new book, Since My Last Confession, which has the subtitle "A Gay Catholic Memoir." Pomfret is a trial attorney with the Securities and Exchange Commission in Boston, as well as an author.

Published in June 2008 by Arcade Publishing, the book is described as a "lighthearted memoir of humor and faith" that "tells two intertwined stories: how a gay Catholic federal prosecutor and erotica writer with an atheist boyfriend reconciled faith, gay romance and a hostile Pope by stalking Boston's Cardinal O'Malley much like Michael Moore stalked Roger Smith in Roger & Me; and how advocates defeated an amendment banning same-sex marriage in Massachusetts, the second-most Catholic state in the country, in spite of fierce opposition from the bishops of the four Catholic dioceses by enlisting a coalition of gay-friendly priests, a few Jewish lesbians and an army of gay Catholic storytellers."

Pomfret, with his partner Scott Whittier, are also the sucessful authors of a series of romance fiction books for gay men, called "Romentics."

At St. Lawrence, Pomfret majored in psychology and English. He was a member of the English honorary the Irving Bacheller Society and was inducted into the national academic honor society Phi Beta Kappa.
