About the Author
Author of eight books and over forty articles on leadership, social justice, organizational development, education, and spirituality, Maurice L. Monette was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, in 1946, and left home at age fourteen to start his education in Catholic seminaries. He earned a doctorate in education from Columbia University and master’s degrees in adult education and theology from Boston University and Weston School of Theology. Ordained as a priest with the Oblate Fathers (OMI) in 1976, he directed master’s programs in church education and leadership at Loyola University in New Orleans and led social justice education programs for the Center of Concern in Washington, DC. Since 1985, he has managed an organizational consulting practice, trained consultants, and also directed a master’s program in organizational psychology at John F. Kennedy University in Pleasant Hill, California. He is a founding partner of The Vallarta Institute, which provides leadership coaching, capacity building, and evaluation services to foundations and civil society clients. In the past year, he has served organizations in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas. He lives in Mexico with his husband of twenty-four years. Confessions of a Gay, Married Priest is his first venture into creative writing, and if he has his druthers, not the last. He takes great joy in writing, painting, and offering spiritual and life coaching. He can be reached at www.GayMarriedPriest.com.

Confessions of a Gay Married Priest is a great read!
You don't have to be Gay or Married or a Priest to enjoy this book!
Aside from the legal issues, Maurice's family's evolution is very touching. Unlike other civil rights issues, gays have to contend not only with legal and societal discrimination, but are often rejected by their own families, who should be their strongest supporters against a hostile world.
Hopefully, this book will hit home to families. Do they wish for their children to have fulfilled lives and loving spouses, be they gay or straight? This book may help them answer that question.
