I typically enjoy my morning smoothie, but this morning’s addition of barium to it wasn’t my favorite ingredient. Give me spinach, carrots, and kale any day!
I am so pleased to be a part of a group of talented writers who are committed to making the world a better place. The #OneMillionProject is that group who donate all proceeds from their short story anthologies to charities it supports.
This week’s #OMP blog is by my friend and neighbor across the Mighty Mississippi — Michele Potter. Enjoy!

The battle against Cancer is real and sometimes heartbreaking, and my family has and is currently dealing with this terrible disease. Despite being a nurse and caring for patients with cancer over the years, it hasn’t made it easier emotionally.
I support the One Million Project and their efforts to raise money for Cancer Research UK (CRUK). Check out my blog on their website. The One Million Project’s Short Story Anthologies are available on Amazon. All proceeds go to CRUK and EMMAUS’ Homeless Programs.

Jealousy, mystery and hints at secrets being revealed while Shanaya Cadotte and CIA Agent Bobbi Keating keep digging to find out who is behind the uptick in criminal activities surrounding the casino. How is Clare involved in all of this? I guess you will have to read the book to find out!!
I love mysteries, don’t you?

As many of you know, I’ve written several blogs on homelessness and the One Million Project’s commitment to raise money for EMMAUS. Another event has caught my attention thanks to Dr. Sheena Macleod, Emma Short and Emma Park. The “Emma’s” will be attending the Sleep in the Park event in Edinburgh, Scotland on Dec. 9, 2017.
Check out the blog on the One Million Project website for more information about how they hope to eradicate homelessness in Scotland.
Each week, the One Million Project spotlights member authors on their website. It’s a great way to discover indie writers and recently published books. Visit https://theonemillionprojectcom.wordpress.com/writers/ each week for updates.
