At the age of 58 Kay earned her Ph.D. in psychology from Saybrook University in San Francisco. Shortly thereafter she moved from Hawaii to California with her beloved partner John Palmer and enjoyed the next 15 years with him until he died the day after his 96th birthday in 2007. Out of her grief and the necessity to rebuild a life, her book Living with the Stranger in Me: An Exploration of Aging was born. Her first book Talking It Over: Understanding Sexual Diversity, published in 2001, came out of her personal experience of learning how to change deep-rooted and inaccurate assumptions and beliefs about sexual diversity after her son Steve came out to her as gay.
