Angela Kelly has been writing since she was tall enough to hit the keys on a manual typewriter. Two of her poems, "Religion" and "Redemption," have been published, and other works have appeared in a variety of independent magazines and newsletters. Unavailable is her first novel-length book.
Kelly lives, breathes, and consumes books. She has been employed in the publishing production industry for over ten years, and has a Bachelor's degree in English from the University of Illinois. She spends much of her time haunting libraries and local bookstores, always in search of the next piece of inspiring and overwhelming literature to add to her reading repertoire.
A native Jersey girl, Kelly currently resides begrudgingly in the cornfields of the Midwest with her partner, Cindy, and their furry four-legged children. She hopes to someday retire near the ocean of the east coast, where she plans to write her memoirs with a sharp shell in the sand.

Second Best Fantasy
Everyone dreams of being a rock star. Dating one is the second best fantasy. Maggie O’Leary is a lonely lesbian dazzled by the talent and charisma of up-and-coming bisexual rock star, Janine Jordan. But they learn love is seldom simple or easy, particularly when both women are also involved in committed relationships with their own addictions.
Unavailable is a collection of short fiction with a unified theme: romantic relationships with women who do not identify themselves as lesbian, referred to affectionately as “the unsures.” From the comic overtones of first love foibles to the heartbreaking descriptions of despair, Unavailable grips the reader with unabashed intimacy.
