I rarely have the opportunity to be a part of something that causes me to stand back and look at the work I do with a sense of wonder. Most of those moments of serendipity have come, in fact, from my job as a mother. I don’t think it’s overstating the case to say that motherhood is the most demanding job I’ve ever had. Never have I put so much faith, or hope, or love, into anything.
Yet every so often I have the opportunity to act on my love for someone or on my belief in a cause in my job as a writer and it always feels like some of the best work I do. That’s the case with Wishing On A Blue Star, the anthology a number of authors participated in on behalf of author Patric Michael, whose cancer journey I have shared as his friend and fan.
To say that this is a labor of love is a vast oversimplification. It’s an enormous outpouring of caring from a community for whom Patric Michael is both a dearly beloved friend and a true inspiration. The eBook is FREE.
