Randy Kay has the perfect life with his beautiful wife and adorable son. But Randy's living a lie, untrue to himself and everyone who knows him. He's gay.

Marriage and fatherhood, which he thought could change him, have failed. He doubts if anyone can love him for who he really is--especially himself.

With his wife's blessing, he sets out to explore the gay world he's hidden from all his life.

John Walsh, a paramedic with the Chicago Fire Department, is comfortable in his own skin as a gay man, yet he can never find someone who shares his desire to create a real relationship, a true family.

When Randy and John first spy each other in Chicago's Boystown, all kinds of alarms go off--some of joy, others of deep-seated fear.

Randy and John must surmount multiple hurdles on the journey to a lasting, meaningful love. Will they succeed or will their chance at love go up in flames, destroyed by missed connections and a lack of self-acceptance?

"...there is a HEA here, but it's hard-won and all the sweeter because of adversity. "Unraveling" is a beautifully written very personal story and I highly recommend it. 5 stars."

--Sinfully Good Book Reviews

"Unraveled is a semi-autobiographical novel about being gay in the eighties; coming to terms with your sexuality, finding love and dealing with the hardships that life can offer...a very emotional read that deals with hard topics...It discusses coming out when in a straight marriage and the prejudice gay people were and still are labelled with. It touches on the AIDS crisis and the blanket of fear, sadness and death it caused. Ultimately, Unraveled has a message of hope that love perseveres...."
