Listening to the news this morning, I heard a wonderful story about a homeless vet outside of Philadelphia who had assisted a young woman stranded after running out of gas.
Johnny Bobbitt, Jr. is a homeless vet who saw Katie McClure pull her car over to the side of the road. He advised McClure to get back into her car and lock the doors. He took the last twenty dollars he had and bought gasoline for the young woman.
Bobbitt was a flight medic in the military and wanted to go to college to be a medevac flight nurse after he left the service, but issues with substance abuse and money problems kept him from his goals.
His selfless deed touched McClure and her boyfriend. They have kept in touch with Bobbitt and recently set up a GoFundMe page for him. As of today, it has raised over 306,000 dollars in response to Bobbitt’s good Samaritan act.
Each of us has the ability to change another person’s life. Johnny Bobbitt, Jr. helped countless of wounded service members when in his military role overseas. He helped a young woman in her moment of need so she could get home safely. Katie McClure and numerous donors are hoping to help change Bobbitt’s life.
Make today amazing by helping someone else in need.
I posted my blog on the #OneMillionProject blog in response to all of the GIF messages and emoticon ridden messages I receive. I mean they are cute and funny. I use them. But it got me to thinking about social media and how it drives our culture.

I would die for my children to keep them safe, and I think most mothers feel the same way I do. So when I was working on my current draft of Never Show Your Hand, I wanted to bring this protective mothering instinct to my character, Shanaya Cadotte.
Shanaya has returned to the Red Cliff Reservation to assist her Uncle Jeb with an accounting issue at the casino. A forensic accountant who had worked for the CIA, Shanaya decided she wanted to raise her daughter near her family, so she relocated from Washington D.C. back to the Bayfield area.
But when she starts to investigate, the threats against her begin and her first priority is keeping her daughter safe. That’s all I’ll tell you about the plot, so I don’t spoil anything. Chapter Eleven of the story is complete and the first draft is nearing 16,000 words.
Question for my readers: How would you keep your child from harm if you were threatened? Would you send them out of town? Or, would you keep them at your side?
We live in a tiny place near the Mississippi River, and our son’s Labrador Retriever has been staying with us as we dog-sit. My husband was walking with the yellow fur baby when he heard a woman calling out, “Hello, Max!” referencing Clare’s loyal dog in Exodus and Winter’s Icy Caress.
On his return, he said, “Another reader of your books thinks Caesar’s name is Max.”
I absolutely love it!
